Yes, they are not testing the same thing. However, my thought was (and
it sounds like you agree) that for checking case-sensitivity checking
we are able to resolve the breakpoint to a file address is enough. We
have plenty of tests that verify the path from a file address to an
actual breakpoint hit.

The reason I went this route (instead of just modifying the original
test) is that this will make it easy to write more low level
breakpoint tests. For example, you can write an assembly file with
amusing .loc directives and check that lldb resolves that reasonably
(this looks like it could be useful for the ppc patch). Adding llvm-mc
support to dotest.py would be possible, but more difficult than with a
test like this.
