Hi *,

Just to let you know - I've added constant FileNameCasePreserving to 
unit System and changed the previous value of FileNameCaseSensitive 
in some cases according to the real behaviour of the respective 
platforms with regard to treatment of case in filenames (trunk only 
and not planned to be merged) - see 
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=18066 and 
http://wiki.freepascal.org/User_Changes_Trunk#Unit_changes. In 
particular, this means that the value of this constant changes for 
Win32 and Win64 (previously incorrectly marked as case sensitive, now 
"only" case preserving but not sensitive). Just to let you know if 
you notice that your code behaves slightly differently now. I don't 
really expect big impact, but it's probably better to issue a warning
