case sensitivity for file api

I stumbled upon this problem, as I usually work on Windows and the files are in a ClearCase view on Unix:
()20> io:format("~s~n", [os:cmd("dir s*tcap*.erl")]).
2006-01-30  13:23               29ÿ899 sS7_Tcap.erl
2006-01-30  13:23               31ÿ722 ss7_tcap.erl
2006-01-30  13:23               33ÿ767 ss7_tcap_subsystem.erl
()21> f(L),L=filelib:wildcard("s*tcap*.erl").        
I guess that filelib and file use the local file driver, which for Windows is case insensitive. But since the network drive's filesystem isn't, there is a problem...
Is there anything to do about it, except running the node on Unix?
