This is wrong. Eg., my layer name in Grass is "bram_wod", but Qgis displays like if the name was "Bram_wod". Why confuse user? And if the layer name was indeed "Bram_wod", how would I make distinction? UNIX is case sensitive. Let qGIS follow. At leat on UniX.

Generally, the name of a qgis layer does not have to be the same as the filename (in the qgis code this is called 'beautifying of layer names'. It is even possible to change it in the layer props dialog. But ok, it may be confusing for users. What is the general consensus about that?
