When running on MS Windows (using Cygwin), NEdit should not distinguish between cases in filenames, otherwise it opens the same file twice, eg as file.txt and File.TXT.
Notice that the hack attached is only meant as demonstration and also is not complete. It is still possible to open the same file twice because of Cygwin mount points, i.e., if the Cygwin root is on say C:\cygwin, then /home/user/file.txt points to the same file as /cygdrive/c/cygwin/home/user/file.txt.
(Notice that with the /cygdrive/ prefix you can reach all areas of all the drives under MS Windows regardless of mount points.)
