It shouldn't cause any issues accessing files, this is really just about 
equals, sorting, and path matching. I think it requires a bit of thought 
as to whether to change this because Apple's JDK6 and older releases 
does not appear to have changed File#equals.

In any case, just to put some context on Sherman's changes, this really 
just another installation of the port to Mac as this area was not 
completely ported. In that context then the changes to fix the 
normalization issues are very welcome. Other missing pieces in this area 
included the watch service, and also a FileTypeDetector implementation.
