insensitive case problem in latest cygwin

The current version of cygwin seems to ignore case in the filesystem.

if you open a cygwin bash shell and type

touch AAA
mv AAA aaa

it says that 'AAA' and 'aaa' are the same filename and doesn't change
the filename.

When I run cygwin setup and go back to the 'prev' version the mv
command changes the name of the file like it has in previous versions.

Sorry I can't get version numbers right now but it's Valentine's day.
