Lightroom Classic: Export doesn't choose a new name on case-sensitive volumes

Export doesn't always choose a new name for files exported with the option Existing Files: Choose A New Name when exporting to case-sensitive volumes.  

To reproduce:

1. Import a photo with an upper-case file extension, e.g. DSC02512.ARW, that resides on a case-sensitive volume.

2. Export the photo with these options:

Export To: Same folder as original photo
Add to This Catalog
Existing Files: Choose a new name for the exported file
Image Format: Original

3. Observe this error message:



The fix is simple -- when checking whether the file already exists, LR should use the original path to the photo unmodified, rather than lower-casing the extension.

Someone tripped over this bug with an Export preset that duplicated cataloged photos:

(And yes, that user had a good reason for not using virtual copies.)
