Nice to see the issue was found! (?)

I think that the proper thing here would be for wimlib to check for
existing paths and use the same casing.
If we consider how dism does this it will have the path and when you add a
file it will add it to the existing path and using existing casing. Then
when the wim is commited the changed files is stored, using that existing
path and casing.
