Because Allfix 5 was written for dos in the DOS days, it defaults everything to
uppercase. Even the original 6 code had that. THis is also one of the things
that v7 is changing is to see if the OS is case sensitive.

I know with the binkd verion I run, there are options in the config file that
will translate the case for me from upper to lower. I am not familure with your
program so Im not sure if there are options within there to allow for the
translation of filenames.
