Adds .ToLower() for the Path.GetExtension (file), so following compatison is
done correctly against ext == ".dll" || ext == ".exe"

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:
Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

MS Visual Studio 2005 Setup Project automatically includes assembly
dependences, however for some reasons it capitalizes .DLL extension, i.e. even
if in debug environment depended assembly was Assembly.dll it turns into
Assembly.DLL. As a result, Mono.Addins scans assembly with ScanConfigAssemblies
instead of ScanAssembly and results into errors.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create application which uses Mono.Addins
2. Change extension of the assembly with embedded addin.xml to the capital .Dll
or .EXE
3. Rebuild Addins database using mautil with verbose (-v) option to see error
Actual Results:  
Addins information in assemblies with capital .DLL or .EXE could not be read.

Expected Results:  
Capitalization of the file extension should not make any difference
