selection should not be case limited

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex amd64

Nautilus 2.24.1-0ubuntu1

When I hit Ctrl+s a window appears and I can write a simple expression. All file whose name matches this expression are then selected. There is only a problem for me: the filter used should be case insensitive. There is no point in me searching for a file whose name I can barely remember if I should also rembember the case..

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately we can't fix it, because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.
 We have instructions on debugging some types of problems.
At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).

the description seems clear, the user request the selection to not be case sensitive which is a reasonable upstream wishlist
