On Windows it shouldn't matter; directory and file names are case
insensitive. It could only have changed with very recent Windows XP
patches I haven't tested yet; but I don't believe so.

On dired directory and file names are case sensitive, they must be
used as Windows reports them in the "dir" command of smbclient.

I still don't understand how it worked on one machine, and it didn't
on another one in your case. For debugging I would need access to both
machines. And no, that is not a request.

Best regards, Michael.
