Hmmm, well then, that would be handled by the 'casesensitive' config
parameter, but again, that config parameter default hasn't changed upstream
between 0.24.4 and 0.24.5, and there's no changes in the code that uses that
config parameter.

Martin, what does puppetmasterd --genconfig say about the value of
casesensitive on your 0.24.5 system?
