That's better!  For average users on some apps, using, say openoffice,
it's far more useful to have the app act in a sort of case insensitive
way in their file save and open dialogs, but leave the file system case
sensitive.  I believe all KDE apps act kind of like that.  If you start
typing a file name in a dialog box, it will suggest completions,
including existing files that match what you are typing but have a
different case.  If you really want a file name that differs only in
case, you still can, though.
