Sorry for all I found the solution in the FAQ:

*Are prefix queries case sensitive?* 
** <>Yes, unlike 
other types of Lucene queries, prefix queries are case sensitive. That 
is because prefix queries are not passed through the Analyzer...

Well that was a rhetorical question... :-)

ps - the FAQ should be in the releases, I hate this 'over the night' 
dial-uping at home and searching on the internet... :-(
