Yes. I experienced this issue when working with Linux.

As far as I remember it was possible to handle case-sensitive names using one of the escape sequences in API calls - probably the same used to handle very long paths.

Unfortunately I don't remember details - I haven't done any Windows programming for years, but this was discussed on this site at the time.
