[tex-live] kpsewhich case insensitive?

After all the discussion here about case (in)sensitive searching in the
pretest TL2018, I got the impression that Windows was immune, as all
its filenames are case insensitive.

However, in two different Windows 7 systems I got a "file not found"
errors from updmap, possibly because updmap.cfg contains "minionpro.map"
while on disk (and in ls-R) the file was named "MinionPro.map" (It resides
under texmf-local). There was no such problem in prior TL2017.

I'm sorry, but I just cannot tell from Karl's explanation whether this
is how it is supposed to behave, so I am reporting it here. I have since
renamed the file and rerun texhash, so the problem is no more for me.
