Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:11741


QgsVectorFileWriter allows to create case sensitive fields like 'foo' and 'FOO' in one table, but values of both attributes are written to the first case-insensitively-found field:

1. Create a new layer with two attributes like 'foo' and 'Foo' and add some features
2. Save it as a new layer: menu Layer -> Save as shapefile
3. The new layer's table contains corrupted data

It also doesn't respect the field width - see also #1664
