 SQL string comparisons are case insensitive by default (who knew!),
 meaning that a music rescan will not pickup a renamed directory if it
 differs only in the case.

 Use BINARY rather than arranging for a case-sensitive comparison because
 the latter still considers 'a' and 'á' equal but for paths we need literal
 binary sameness.

 Apply the same logic to music_songs.filename, although I've not tripped
 over a related issue there.

 I have runtime tested this with the fixes/0.28 branch and build tested
 against master, the tip of both is identical for the file in question so I
 hope this is acceptable.
