thanks

IIUC you'd like completion to be both case-sensitive (if that matches
something) and case-insensitive (if there's no case-sensitive match).

On OSX 10.4.11, I have ~/Desktop and ~/DES.pdf. Until recently, when I
did "C-x C-f ~/Des TAB", it would expand to Desktop. Now, both
"DES.pdf" and "Desktop" are considered possible expansions of "Des".

I see the point, because the default file system on OSX appears to be
case insensitive. Still, it is a regression for me: I find the
previous default behaviour of Emacs (which is also the default in
22.2) much better, since it often allows faster expansion if you know
the stored case of a file. Is there a way to get it back? Thanks!
