This is strange.
At least on regular platform, i.e., non-Windows,  ESS really
uses base R's own completion engine and that will definitely
differentiate lower- and upper-case,  and hence correctly treat

Which Version of ESS (and Emacs) are you talking about?
(M-x emacs-version  /  M-x ess-version)
