Now, I am curious how it breaks on OS X.

My suspition is that "ignore_case" may have something to do with it,
but what 2eac2a4c (ls-files -k: a directory only can be killed if
the index has a non-directory, 2013-08-15) uses are the bog-standard
cache_name_exists() and directory_exists_in_index(), so one of these
internal API implementation has trouble on case insensitive
filesystems, perhaps?  I dunno.
