Subject: sendmail: Is this a bug? "Unknown User" or is my wrong?

I'm currently running NetBSD-1.5.2. Today, I just created a new user to be
used as a mail-list receiver - uClinux (Note the capital C!)

The whole system seems to behave properly with the username - uClinux. But,
when I try to send e-mail to it, I get "User Unknown" from sendmail.

I renamed the user to uclinux, and it works fine now.

Is there something in default Sendmail configuration that won't allow mixed
case usernames?

Is there a way to set case-sensitivity?
