 A fix would be for the conditional to read:
    if ((platform != MACOSX) && DirectorySeparatorChar == '/' && isUpper && isLower)
       throw Exception;

+Dan Winship kindly pointed out that on Mac OS X, it is possible to have case-sensitive HFS 
+filesystems, or to have a UFS filesystem instead (which is also case sensitive).  Mac OS X 
+server by default is case sensitive.  However, the default for Mac OS X desktop machines is 
+a case insensitive HFS filesystem.
+The true solution would be to open both files, and check and see if they are the same.  
+This could be done on POSIX systems with a simple stat(), but it is not clear if an 
+equivalent exists in System.IO.
+So, the solution is still unclear.
