The distinction occurs because vfat is a case-insensitive filesystem and
Unix filesystems aren't.  If mcs was made case-insensitive, what would
happen if Classpath.dll was present _as well as_ classpath.dll on a Unix

Personally, I don't believe the current behaviour to be buggy - more a
representation of the environment - nor able to be ``fixed'', whatever
that would entail.
