Characters in workgroup name converted to lower case

Bug Description


When opening the server settings dialog box, the workgroup name is displayed in lowercase characters even when the name is written in uppercase in smb.conf.

When making any change in security server settings (menu preferences/server settings/security), the workgroup name is written back in smb.conf characters as it is displayed , that is, lowercase.

So the user must also write again the workgroup name in uppercase characters before saving changes to avoid any uncertainty.

It could be welcome that the case of the workgroup name won't change when displaying the server settings.

Thank you,
