    Not come across this before, just had a quick look at fedora on my netbook and it doesnt seem to be affected by this.

    What version of ubuntu / gnome are you using?

    I realise I could have chosen a more appropriate screenshot for here sorry, just happened to be when I was using that particular folder that the problem presented itself trying to follow files in order.

    Im using Ubuntu Jaunty, and whatever gnome that brings with it.

    I find the same happens in "ls -l" too

    again ls -l doesnt care about case here.

    Had a look in my .bashrc and /etc/bashrc to see if there is any special things attached to ls in fedora but apprently not.

    Looking in nautilus config there isnt anything about case sensative listings.

    Because ls -l returns the same problem it implies that its at the system level instead of a nautilus bug

    in fact, ls -l displays it correctly, its just the window manager that is displaying it wrongly... just one of the small quirks annoying me

    works fine in fedora its obviously ubuntus patched up version thats breaking it.
