-Summary: mono can't find a referenced assembly located in cwd and MONO_PATH
+Summary: Mono is case sensitive to load assembly while MS isn't
 Description of Problem:
 Trying to run FxCop 1.312 under mono doesn't work. It can't find
 Microsoft.Cci.dll, which is in the same directory and the binary. Adding
 the directory to MONO_PATH and/or making it the only directory in MONO_PATH
 doesn't change the behaviour.

 That fixed that problem, thanks! It would be nice to just be able to
 copy the binaries as-is and have them work with mono, though. Any
 chance that a case-insensitive search can be done for the file
 extension in these cases?

+The filesystem could have multiple different files named a.DLL, a.Dll,
+a.dLL, a.dll and so on (not that it really make sense for assemblies
+It could be possible, if the perfect match doesn't exists, to look for
+alternatives - but that introduce many potential problems (e.g. the
+load order versus case sensitivity).
+Anyway I'm changing name, priorities... for this bug to get other
+people opitions on the matter.
