WinSCP "Keep remote directory up to date" feature does not sync file name changes when only the case of the file name changes (Ex: a file name change from PHPClass.php to phpclass.php does not sync). This is a problem when syncing to a system with a case sensitive directory/file system (in my case Ubuntu 12.10 Server Edition), especially when it comes to web sites and the like.

WinSCP version 5.1.3
Windows 8 x64
Transfer protocol SFTP to Ubuntu 12.10 Server Edition

WinSCP treats local file name as case insensitive as they are. This is definitelly not a bug. It could be a configurable option at most.
