Surely you are not suggesting we should potentially break existing functionality for the majority of Windows users, just to cater for a handful of people who intentionally break their systems just because they can?

I mean, if we have code in there that assumes NTFS (and SMB) volumes are case insensitive (at least when accessed from Windows), we should definitely keep it that way, even if somebody might have toggled a registry value to change it. If somebody does that, they deserve what they get.
