Agreed. However, since the Unix world allows file names to mix upper and
lower case, I believe this should be documented. The information on pp. 52-53
of the IDL 5.4 "Using IDL" manual makes no mention of case restrictions,
which implicitly suggests that anything goes.

I'm not sure what you mean here. In the case I presented, the effect it
has is that the routine does *not* run.
