New windows case sensitivity in Python 2.1?

I seem to be seeing a new case sensitivity to the import command under
windows (Win98 FAT 32).
is failing from import Tkinter. If I open a DOS command window, and
change to the Dll's directory, a DIR shows me
_TKINTER PYD 22,528 06-13-01 10:53p _TKINTER.PYD
in other words the so-called long file name is all upper case. Now if
in that directory I do a (case sensitive)
rename _tkinter.pyd foo
rename foo _tkinter.pyd
DIR shows me
_TKINTER PYD 22,528 06-13-01 10:53p _tkinter.pyd
and the import works. This is either ActiveState 2.1 binary
or the AS source distribution build with MSVC 5.
I've also had 'import idlever' fail from idle - same thing: it's
a DOS 8.3 file name with no mixed case. No problem with execfile.
I never has this problem under 2.0
