It's not that it's really dangerous, it simply doesn't solve the issue
except in that very specific case. There are many other places,
notably the loadorder support, where we cannot do case-sensitive
lookups. And yes, I think winemaker should make the's lower
case (and the dlls too BTW, they will have the same problem).
