mv (coreutils) 5.2.1 - a bug?

I tried to rename a file (let's call it "asdfgh") found on a FAT partition to "Asdfgh". It didn't work, the error I received was something like:
asdfgh and Asdfgh are the same file
The problem is that when I tried the same thing on my Linux partition (ext2 type), the file was renamed. Any ideas why didn't work on FAT?

FAT filenames are case insensitive, ext2 are case sensitive.
