WebDav/davfs mounted file & directory names in all UPPERCASE


I have a WebDav directory mounted and everything seems fine except for one thing. All file/directory names appear in all UPPERCASE, when in actual fact they are lowercase on the remote machine.

For example:
foo/bar/baz.html on the remote host, appears on my local machine as
I can open and edit the file fine, but when I save it, it is renamed on the remote host as
which subsequently breaks an references to that file being made elsewhere.

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, as this is my first experience with WebDav. I am using davfs to mount the directory as a normal user.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance
