nautalis crashing when created directory with capital letters in debian


Iam using the following environmet

Linux debian 2.6.17-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Sep 13 16:34:10 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

Gnome nautilus 2.14.3

Iam having the following partition

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1275 10241406 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 1276 8870 61006837+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda3 8871 10011 9165082+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda5 1276 2550 10241406 b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda6 2551 4973 19462716 b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda7 5101 5222 979933+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda8 5223 7654 19535008+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda9 7655 8870 9767488+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda10 4974 5100 1020096 7 HPFS/NTFS

Iam using the dualboot option such that I like to work my java project both in my Linux as well as in windows.

As given above i have placed all my tomcat project under /mnt/sda5 which is FAT32 partition. Here comes the problem. Whenever I tried to place the war files because of its hot-deploy nature it has to deploy under webapps folder perfectly as WEB-INF and META-INF folders. But it is creating with lower case? what should I do for this? Is this a bug?

As a test case also I had created folder with small case and changed to upper case. This also made the nautilus to crash (suddenly breaking down getting confirmation dialog box to restart or close)

Thanks in advance for any help regarding this.

As you probably know, FAT32 with vfat is supposed to preserve case but be case insensitive. But I have had some issues with this on Linux. For example, I know when I wanted to create a directory (or maybe it was the file) called KNOPPIX on a FAT32 partition it ended up in lower case. It seemed, however, to be tolerated, as the KNOPPIX system booted just fine.

I know this isn't a definitive answer, but I hope it is helpful.
