I have tested on an NTFS partition and the problem persist.

Only POSIX compliant application on NTFS partition are Full case
sensitive and this is not the case for Java interpreter.

I think that the problem is easy to resolve.
If Anselm Baird-Smith tell me where the new Resource is created, I
try to resolve.

The list() member of File class return the correct case sensitive
file names of files in a directory (I have tested and work fine).
So the problem is test if the name of new Resource match with one 
of the file returned from list() member function only once. The 
next time the resource is present in index.
