PostgreSQL schema_search_path ignores case


I have to connect to a legacy DB wich has a schema called “Financeiro”.

I setup my database.yml to:

schema_search_path: Financeiro

when activerecord tries to find something I get the following error:

ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: RuntimeError: ERROR C3F000 Mschema “financeiro” does not exist

F.\src\backend\catalog\namespace.c L2898 Rassign_search_path: SET search_path TO Financeiro from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.1.0/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract_adapter.rb:147:in `log’

Note that in the error message I get financeiro (downcase).

If I rename the schema to financeiro downcase it works well. But it is not possible in the production environment.
