One way would be to allow both, but change the username to the  
correct case:

password_query = select user, password, ..

ie. make it return the "user" field as in the database.

Another way would be to change the SQL query to do case sensitive  
comparision instead of .. where user = '%u'. I don't remember how  
exactly this was done with MySQL, see its documentation.
