This has nothing to do with Cygwin. You are (still) confusing Cygwin
and your shell. You would hugely benefit from gaining some basic
knowledge about the tools you've been using since 1979.
Your transcript was done in a shell called "bash". Globbing in bash is -
by default - case sensitive. If you want to change that, read the man
page and then set option "nocaseglob" ("shopt -s nocaseglob").
