This comes up on the list fairly often on the list. The most recent thread
is here:
https://public-inbox.org/git/d4d8d8208b6a41c380ecf20807763bcf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/

The replies to that thread explain the behavior, why it does what it does,
and why it hasn't been changed yet. It happens on case-insensitive macOS
filesystems and on NTFS on Windows.

Hope this helps!
