Hi Chris

Looking at the endings of your files, are some in uppercase and some in
lowercase ? Like image.html and image.HTML ?

There was a problem earlier (April 2001) in the mailing list with
LocalFS not making case-insensitive lookups. See:


Don't know, wether there is already a new release of LocalFS meanwhile.
