I can not confirm this, but from my little NT-Knowledge I would bet it will
type it. You will still get a problem if you use a file-system which allows
you to have a file "Hello.txt" *and* "hello.txt" in one directory (and yes,
this is possible even with plain NTFS if you use POSIX-functions provided by
MS). On the NTFS-filesystem I tried this on NT typed *one* of the files
*twice* :-)

I think it would be better to let the user decide what to do in a specific
case.

And look at this:

D:\temp>D:\jdk13\bin\javac Hello.java

D:\temp>D:\jdk13\bin\javac Hello.JAVA
javac: invalid argument: Hello.JAVA

It doesn't seem to be a good solution to automatically include files like
"*.JAVA" in a javac-task.

Sometimes I *really* hate Windows :-)
