At present, it seems like only the first letter of the target is case insensitive.
i.e. If I want to go to:
US citizenship article on wikipedia I can type either:

However, if I don't have the S as a capital I won't get the article. i.e. this won't work:

Admittedly referal pages can catch this, but it's just silly to have thousands of referers 
when all that needs to be done is to make the entire thing case insensitive rather than 
the first character. Any articles that are sharing a name that is only different by one 
capital letter will end up with a disambiguation page anyway.

Oh, and making people sign up to report a bug/enhancement is silly.
