[Perforce] Folder renaming with letter case changes are not properly detected

Package: Version Control


Reproduction steps:
1. Create a new Unity and connect it to a perforce server
2. Create a new folder inside the Assets folder of Unity project
3. Create or add any file inside the just created folder
4. Submit all changes to perforce
5. In Unity try to change the case of one of the letters of the folder you created (Example from 'Folder' to 'folder')
6. Click 'yes' on the prompt window (it will say that you are renaming a file that is under VC)
7. In P4V client hit refresh

Expected result: the files in the old folder should be recorded as move/delete, and files in the new folder should be move/add
Actual result: Unity does not record the deletion of the old folder or the creation of the new folder (the folder disappears from P4V entirely)

Reproducible with: 2018.4.35f1, 2019.4.26f1, 2020.3.8f1, 2021.1.7f1, 2021.2.0a17

1. There are videos in edits
2. The issue does not occur when changing the name of the folder (just the case of the letter)

  1. Resolution Note:

    Folder case-renaming are now properly detected by Perforce on a case-sensitive server (Linux)
    Fixed in: 2022.2.0a7

  2. Resolution Note (fix version 2020.3):

    Fixed in 2020.3.33f1

    Did you just fix it in the two version above? Seems to still happen in 2021.3.28f1.
