      Description

      In order to support reasonable file permissions in hotjava, it is useful
      to know if the file system naming is case sensitive, as our comparisons
      must be consistant with that. The Win NT file dialog aggravates this problem
      (but certainly isn't the only issue) because it 'automatically' generates
      file and path names in 'mixed' case.
