The functionality for "adjust" here;

doesn't reflect the following;

$ echo $CYGWIN
notitle glob check_case:adjust server=1
<set in cygwin.bat>
$ uname -srv
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.5.12s(0.116/4/2) 20040924 15:42:01 
$ pwd
$ ls
$ cd mail
$ pwd
$ /bin/pwd
$ type -a pwd
pwd is a shell builtin
pwd is /usr/bin/pwd
pwd is /bin/pwd

Seems to me that "check_case:adjust" is a NOP.
Hmm... to be investigated; does bash itself have an "adjust" mode?
