Here's a thing that might be worth a mention in the
Filename Case Problems
If your program works OK on one drive or filing system
but not on another, or builds correctly on one filing
system but not another, the problem may be due to
case-mangling of filenames.
Symptom: otherwise inexplicable errors about modules
with only mixed-case names not being found
(e.g. UserDict). This can affect .dll names too.
Likely causes: Netware or other filesystems that
force "8.3" filenames to upper case, or Samba
filesystems with either "preserve case = No" or "short
preserve case = No" in smb.conf.
* Build and execute only on a local hard drive.
* Set up Samba with "preserve case = Yes" and "short
preserve case = Yes".
* Netware seems to preserve case of filenames
contained in a folder if the folder itself has a long name.
