Another workaround is to fix the cases of directories in your PATH. If
you do that, you can keep the "check_case:strict" setting.

That's a good question. Try as I might, I couldn't see *any* changes in
the path.cc code that could have caused this behavior to change. All of
the relevant code was written as far back as 2001...
