The filter function is potentially very useful for filtering files in current path based on wildcard. But, having this matching "case-sensitive" completely invalidates the usefulness. If the matching cannot be made case-insensitive by default, then please at least make it configurable.

I cannot fathom, how somebody can find this feature useful as it is. Imagine searching for a file by name. Was it called "Report" or "report" or "REPORT" ?

Having to use [Rr][Ee][Pp][oO][Rr][Tt] is as good as useless.

thank you

(In #1373) Branch: 1373_more_filter_options
Initial changeset:42a883f380ed8e6d82a2e1699829b8d1c261743b

The main idea is apply same options for file filter as for file selection and use the same dialog window.
