Summary0005901: .lin files can't be opened if different case than .map name
DescriptionTDM always produces .lin files whose names are all lower-case. DR won't recognise .lin files for anything but external leaks if the map name isn't also all lower-case.
Steps To Reproduce1) Create a test map whose name starts with an upper-case letter.
2) Create a room from caulk and put a player start + light in there.
3) Create an internal leak, i.e. by drawing a visportal that doesn't span the width of the room.
4) Dmap this in TDM. It should work, but a .lin file should be generated because of step 3.
5) Attempt to open this .lin file in DR. It should say that no .lin files have been found for this map.
6) Close DR, rename the .map so it's all lower-case.
7) Repeat step 5, this time the .lin file should be found.
TagsNo tags attached.

Perhaps because I'm on Linux (which has case sensitive file systems), I cannot actually reproduce the issue as described. TDM writes out a .lin file with the correct capitalisation. Nevertheless, it would make sense for DR to be more liberal when looking for .lin files, and open one if it matches the map name but not the case (and there are no other .lin files which are a better match).

0005901: pointfile identification is now case-insensitive

On Windows there is no guarantee that TDM will write out a .lin file
with the same case as the map name, for example a map named ""
may end up with a pointfile "leak_portal_xxx.lin". We now use
case-insensitive string comparisons when identifying matching
pointfiles, so that pointfiles of any case will appear in the list.

This might give wrong results if a mapper on Linux is working on both
"" and "" in the same directory, but that seems a very
unlikely situation, and the only ill effect is that the pointfile list
might include more pointfiles than necessary.
