I will look into fixing the application, but it may not be possible.  
There must be a filesystem that I can use.  Mac's have HFS+ which can be 
case insensitive.  Aren't Macs pretty much Linux?  Isn't there a similar 
filesystem availalbe for linux?  I wouldn't run the whole system on it, 
just the portion that hosts the app.
