I have device DNS names that have capital letters in them (like SiteA.Router.Company.local), but by the time rancid goes to look in .cloginrc for the information needed there, it has converted everything to lower case and insists on stripping out my beautiful capital letters (sitea.router.company.local). Any ideas why it doesn't like mixed case names? Can that be fixed?
