So you're saying that
a) Emacs is deferring to Bash to do the completion in this case; and
b) bash is not ignoring case?
I find both of those hard to believe -- particularly since if I type "cd doc" at a shell prompt that's not inside emacs, but is in a Terminal.app, it does what I want (namely: completes to "cd Documents").
If a) is in fact correct, then I suppose Emacs is somehow starting the shell differently than Terminal.app is.

Hi, sorry it's taken so long for someone to get back to you, but this
isn't Emacs's filename completion, this is the shells. Probably bash.
I'm afraid I can't help you with that.
