           Summary: Host values in config are case sensitive
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.8.1p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: kwerle at pobox.com

OK, ssh_config SAYS: "The host is the hostname argument given on the command line (i.e., the name is 
not converted to a canonicalized host name before matching)."

But, really, I'd like to see case insensitivity.

MYHOST.somedomain.com is certainly the same as myhost.somedomain.com

This on OSX 10.3
rgmac:/Users/kwerle% ssh -V       
OpenSSH_3.8.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7g 11 Apr 2005
