You are right.  So I put together a simple example demonstrating this
MinGW "issue" and it worked fine indicating that MinGW has no such bug and
can deal with these case issues with no problem.

There must have been some other issue with my complicated example, and
my apologies to you and Henri for the noise I generated about this
"issue", but also my thanks to you guys for clarifying the issue.
