Testing the username case-insensitive was discussed long ago
and we decided not to do that.  Check commit


I don't know what's going on on your machine, but Cygwin does NOT
change usernames willy-nilly.  The username stored in Cygwin is
the one either returned by Windows via the WIn32 function
LookupAccountSidW, or it is the name as stored in /etc/passwd,
should this file exist and /etc/nsswitch.conf allows access
(which is the default).
