The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 12954
Attempting to change upper case file name to lower case from windows results in no change to file

Samba does not allow a windows box to rename a file from upper case to lower case. I am running 4.5.8 on a Debian base, and somewhere after 4.1.17 it appears something has changed that is disallowing case change. The freenode #samba channel suggested that it might be a regression, and directed me to file a bug.
This particular machine is not one that I am permitted to direct compile on. I have apt access however and have updated to the latest in the stable Debian repos.
My testing has been limited to ensuring I am using the same smb.conf file that worked under 4.1.17.
