No, that should solve your problem.

This is a well known problem with case insenstitve clients and case sensitive
servers.  Unfortunately it is a bit messy and no one has come up with a working
fix yet.

If you are really interested, there was a recent discussion on the issue and
how to fix it which should be available from the mail archives.  Make sure to
follow the whole thread though.  IIRC, I suggested one solution and later
realized that a second was more appropriate.

Also, I've never tried or even heard of Murray Bishop's workarounnd before, but
it may work.
