No, the original behavior is the current behavior. The reason had to do with
the fact that scanning was always done recursively from the base directory
of the fileset, and file names were always constructed based on what was
read on the output of File.list() rather than based on the include patterns.

The current test of DirectoryScanner passes with the nightly of July 10th.

Then we need to extend this getCanonicalPath to all case unsensitive
if the JRE on all these systems behaves like on Windows in the sense that
new File("parent", "SuBdIr") ==> parent/SuBdIr even if subdir is actually
written "subdir"
