LR4 (trial) import hangs during import of files if extension has been changed from uppercase to lowercase on Win7 x64 machine. For example: I imported several files named P1000830.RW2, P1000831.RW2, .... Afterwords the file extension was changed to lowercase outside of LR. When reimporting the files (*.rw2) while the old files (*.RW2) were still in the LR Library, the import hangs.
