Win32 and case sensitivity

[ #21916 ]
Who says the Windows filesystem isn't case sensitive? Courtesy of the FILE_FLAG_POSIX_SEMANTICS flag:

C:\>dir pos*
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 5C18-0618

Directory of C:\

11/18/2004  09:44p                   8 Posix1.txt
11/18/2004  09:31p                   0 posix1.txt
               2 File(s)              8 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  87,451,049,984 bytes free

I'm not sure what's happening behind the scenes, because if I open 'posix1.txt', it has the same data as 'Posix1.txt', even though the dir command shows it as having 0 bytes. Hard link?

Kooky.
