It used to work as you described until 1.3.something on Mac OS X and  
Windows. I fixed it for Mac OS X. If you happen to use it, the fix  
can be removed easily :-)

If you are lucky, you can get this behavior by lowercasing all names  
when they enter MoinMoin. In 1.3 there was a request method named  
normalizePagename - you may try to use name = name.lower() in that
