Original submission:

Hey there.

I just found a patch in some freebsd bugtracker and saw that it says
 that case insensetive search does not work in 4.6.1 (maybe in CVS i
 did not test that :S )

I tried it and it does not works :))

A simple example how to reproduce. Get a directory which contains 
case and non-case filenames too:

- service
- services
- ICEcube
- somethingelse

Now, when you open Search dialog and put ICE for filename you wanna 
search then you got result like:

Case sens. ON:

- ICEcube (so it find it)

Case sens. OFF:

- ICEcube (so it find it again)

Let switch what we want to search. switch to ice then results:

Case sens. ON:

- service
- services

Case sens. OFF:

- service
- services

^^ So see the bug, while case sens. was off and you searched for ice
 you need to see ICEcube too in the list, but you wont.

The patch original source is: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=99428

I take the patch from there and "reformatted" for mc 4.6.1

I attached two patch one for 4.6.1 and one for CVS (20070206 checkout)

Applies clean and fixes the bug, if not fixed in CVS already. I think no :)

Please, read the link below - this is the expected behaviour:


Anyway, I'll take a look at those patches.

I took a look at the patch and it is pretty straightforward. However
 it is not what we want - it misuses the "case Sensitive" mark under
 the "Content" field - that flag is related to the data entered into
 the "Content" field and not the "Filename" field. I'll modify the 
dialog and adjust the code to do the right thing.

I also think that the current option is not intuitive, and I thought
that this is a bug.
