Ok I went back to a Linux system and checked the contents of the directory. 
There are two separate files in the directory:

$ ll io-mapping.txt IO-mapping.txt 
-rw-rw-r--. 1 ev3builder ev3builder 3288 Aug  5 12:14 io-mapping.txt
-rw-rw-r--. 1 ev3builder ev3builder 8049 Aug  5 12:14 IO-mapping.txt

On Mac OS X:

$ ll io-mapping.txt IO-Mapping.txt
-rw-r--r--  1 tcmac  staff  3288 Aug 28 10:57 IO-Mapping.txt
-rw-r--r--  1 tcmac  staff  3288 Aug 28 10:57 io-mapping.txt
Technically there's only one file, but Mac OS X ls -l permitted the display 
of the capitalized IO-Mapping.txt, which is confusing... but tab-completion 
only found io-mapping.txt.

Thanks a lot for solving this mystery. Looks like the original repository 
needs cleaning up.
