There seems to be an issue where a case sensitive Host entry is no
longer working after update to openssh 6.5

example entry: (was working before update)
Host MyHost
	Port 1234
	User root
	IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa

When issuing "ssh MyHost" the outcome is now:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname myhost: Name or service not known

When the above entry is changed to:
Host myhost, the connection works fine again.
