--- Comment #1 from Nik Everett <neverett+bugzi...@wikimedia.org> ---
Confirming.  And:

This feature is served by a combination of MediaWiki, the MWSearch extension,
and the TitleKey extension.  They all play pretty intricately here,
unfortunately.  TitleKey in particular is designed not to care about
capitalization.

When we upgrade the wiki to CirrusSearch it'll replace both MWSearch and
TitleKey and _should_ fix this.  It still tries to squash case but it then has
a recheck phase where it'll find the best match based on some heuristics like
"what if I capitalize the first letter, does that find only one page?"  That
particular one should fix this.

It isn't enough just to enable CirrusSearch as a betafeature, unfortunately,
because this is the one place where that doesn't take effect.  TitleValue still
"wins".

So, tl/dr: it should "just" "fix itself" in a few months.  You can't opt in to
fixing it earlier right now because of a bug though we might fix that faster
then a few months.
