#5439 closed defect (wontfix)

No warning when overwriting files on case-insensitive systems

If I have a file on the server called "SAMPLE.doc" and attempt to upload "sample.doc", Cyberduck does not warn me that the file exists before overwriting it. It simply does the overwrite. The case of the server file does not change after the overwrite, though. It seems to happen if any characters do not match in case. If I change the local file name to match the case of the server file, it shows the warning properly.

We make the assumption that the host has a case sensitive file system.
