Default behaviour of a default HFS+ that makes no difference between u  
and U – I am using HFSX, the variant that make the difference. (Only  
upon re-installation of Mac OS X.) I should have thought of it!

The "case preserving" case of HFS+ is: when you want U and only u is  
there, you get nothing. If you want u and U is there, you get nothing  
again. I wonder why the MS file system don't show this behaviour.
