pdb uses os.path.abspath and os.path.normcase to normalize filenames so
they can be safely compared (see the canonic method in bdb.py).
I suggest you do the same in your editor; e.g:
pdb_filename = ...
for buffer in editor_buffers:
filename = os.path.normcase(os.path.abspath(buffer.filename))
if pdb == filename:
... found it ...
