It looks like the checkout code does try to cope with the case (in terms of 
internally noting what was checked out), but it's not clear what git status 
shows for you. 

Does 'git status' show the the true branch name or the requested name?

The checkout code is quite complex ;-)

It does look like the report of "Switched to branch 'XX' " may need looked at 
just to make sure it has the true name that git branch found.

  Deigo,
  If you look carefully, the "*" asterisk is missing as well as the 
colourisation.



  This can be traced to builtin/branch.c#L423 which does an exact compare of 
the two ascii strings. The HEAD checked out branch name doesn't match any of 
the ref/heads

  However that's not the root cause. It's more likely that it's the 'git 
checkout' code that doesn't  replace the requested branch-name with the on-disc 
branch-name, which may need to be a special case for case insensitive file 
systems, or just do it anyway.

  Have a browse, and have a go at a sending a quick patch upstream 
g...@vger.kernel.org

    When I "checkout" a branch using different Upper Case/Lower Case than the 
original, the branch doesn't show in "git branch [--list]"
