That may be the problem; the ifcico code converts all to lower case before
looking for the files; so the file must be in lowercase in the filesystem.

You must configure your SMB export so that 8+3 names are stored locally
in lowercase.

No. Because as DOS/Windows/OS2 are case insensitive almost 90% of programs
there doesn't follow any logical way in the case they use.

The solution is to configure your samba to store in lower case.
And you can also do a:

for i in `find * -type -f` ; do
mv $i `dirname $i`/`basename $i | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z'`
