I have no idea if this is a security ticket is already?

When I log into my WP installation, is the spelling of the user name does not matter. It will not pay attention to small and large case of the characters.

This is intentional per #5472. We used to maintain a false sense of case sensitivity for usernames, but case insensitivity makes more sense with how MySQL handles the search by default.
