Yes, we want.
Because the file system will treat "Filename.txt" and "FileName.txt"
the same.
Whatever is on disc, the OS will not distinguish them.
(On a case-insensitive HFS+ partition).

And when core.ignorecase == true, Git does the same what the OS does,
ignore the case.

Could you describe the problems more in detail ?

Could you supply a test case, (or a short script) which shows
the problem and makes it reproducable for others?

Which problems does your patch solve, which can not be solved
by setting core.ignorecase==false manually?
