lower_case_table_names not working for SELECT

We're running our current TTS application with MySQL (on Unix). All
table and column names are in lower-case. However, we need to access this
database with a new application which (for some reason) converts all
table and column names in its SELECT statements to uppercase.

Since MySQL is case-sensitive on Unix, I added the statement
set-variable = lower_case_table_names=1
to /etc/my.cnf. However, statements like
still fail with error 1146, while
works. It seems that lower_case_table_names is not utilized in SELECT
(and probably other) statements.
How-To-Repeat: Create a table with lower-case name, activate lower_case_table_names=1,
try to access the table in upper-case with SELECT statement.Fix: Support lower_case_table_names for SELECT statments, too.
