Regarding case changes of filenames.  What version of windows are you
using when the filenames change case?  What filesystem is on the thumb

I use Win98 and Win XP.  Both read the thumb drive, and I never
changed the format of the thumb.  Not sure what OS one would say is on
the thumb drive though.

Win98 will sometimes change filenames but NT/2k(3)/XP should not.  If
it is the latter, I would suggest that it is an application that
modifies the filename, not the OS.  Windows 98 however, does like to
change filenames (FILE.TXT becomes File.txt).  There is a checkbox in
Explorer->View->Allow All Uppercase file names.

I think it's a mixture, but yes, I'm sure an app is to blame
sometimes.  I don't know what on earth is case-changing directory
names though; that's sure inconvenient when the host OS for the repo
is a Unix variant...
