Since it would seem that OS are not going to fix the file name problem with the 
10k image files, has anybody made a start on correcting this problem.

For those who did not know there was a problem, it's to do with the fact that 
the core data is listed and identified using upper case file names, but around 
have of the blocks have been incorrectly named using lower case versions ... 
result ... missing areas on a linux/unix server system :(

I supose an alternative might be to rewrite the mapserver code, but since the 
geo-reference file IS upper case one has to handle both at the same time. The 
idea is to provide the 10k data as alternative layer to the osm data at some 
point, and switching to a windows server seems somewhat archaic?
