OK... _Now_ I understand the difference.  

How would you fix MinixFS and U: to correctly display mixed-case filenames
under ST-ZIP, then?  

I used to think ST-ZIP was at fault, but since it works from FNramFS and 
VFAT.... I'm sure something could be done to fix MinixFS and U: also, but
what and how??
