Another workaround is to fix the cases of directories in your PATH.  If
you do that, you can keep the "check_case:strict" setting.

That's a good question.  Try as I might, I couldn't see *any* changes in
the code that could have caused this behavior to change.  All of
the relevant code was written as far back as 2001...
