I've never had trouble with my case-sensitive filesystem, so I think the 
true problem is your choice of software. ;-)

I got around the opposite problem when my volume wasn't case-sensitive 
and I needed it to be for some linux-centric OSS development. I made a 
disk image that was case sensitive and mounted it and ran everything 
related to that project from within it. Depending on just how broken 
this software is, that might be a solution for you.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
