Bug#634649: os-prober does not detect Windows if there is a /boot folder in the Windows partition

Package: os-prober
Version: 1.44ubuntu1

If the Windows partition contains a /boot/grub/core.img folder (this occurs when beginners install GRUB by mistake in the Windows partition), os-prober won't detect Windows any more.

I believe this is due to the fact that there are 2 folders with similar names ("/Boot" and "/boot"), so os-prober just sees the /boot folder instead of the /Boot or /BOOT folder coming with Windows)

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 32bits, but this bug has been also confirmed with previous os-prober versions.
