lowercase filenames as they are added

I'm wary of changing the semantics for matching, since it's very likely
that users are inadvertently depending on this - it has been this way
for ~20 years.

I think it would be safer if we lowercase hostnames *as they are
added*. This avoids changing semantics for existing hosts but lets new
ones be stored in the canonical format.

Does this solve the problem for you?
