Well, this behaviour is taken into account, you can modify in the
properties of the server wherever it will do a case sensitive match or
not.

Well, there are strange things about zip, for example if no files are in a

should add an empty file or the directory itself (force it). That may
explain things. We will test that with the zip you are referring to.
