[Qt-creator] Creator gets confused on filenames

This is the expected behavior on MacOS: the file system (hfs+) is by default not case sensitive like linux' ext2/..., but simply file preserving like on windows.

So Main.qml and main.qml are indeed the same file... But maybe QtCreator should be smart enough to detect this, and request another name.

Best regards,
