Indexing external content with a case sensitive URL

There is currently a bug in MOSS 2007 search that automatically converts any URLs entered to lower-case.

We had a site hosted on a UNIX server that had a case sensitive URL, so when I entered MOSS 2007 converted it to and then tried to crawl this URL, but UNIX would return a "page could not be found" error.

Microsoft provided us with a hotfix for this, so if you have the same problem I suggest you raise a support request. :-)
