Can you expand on exactly what you mean by the "as long" part?
Meaning that, if we go with #1, we should make sure we are not doing
case-insensitive comparisons in gdb unless it is clearly stated we
should do it (like handling of Windows paths i suppose).
For the record, i think #3 is not acceptable and we don't seem to have a
good justification for keeping the behavior of #2 other than "we've been
doing this since ...".
So i think #1 would be the best. I just wanted to point out we may want
to make sure there are no other gdb places with the same undocumented
Does that make sense?
