Right, this is known. Branch names (and all ref names) are case
sensitive in Git. Storage on a case-insensitive filesystem may lead to
confusion if you mix the cases. Sometimes it will work, and sometimes it
will create quite confusing results. One suggested path forward is to
encode characters in the filesystem. See:

and further down-thread:

for some recent discussion.
