Re: sed seems to force UC filename on Mixed 8.3 filenames on FAT32

OK. I get this:

~> stat /j/PStart.xml
  File: /j/PStart.xml

Does that help at all?

It's not so much the behaviour on FAT32, which I could put up with as
a filesystem pehenomenon if it had always been the case: but it's just
started in the past few days. Can't think what has been updated that
would cause this change. Previously sed and dos2unix which I use
constantly (and others) did NOT change the case of the filename.
