      Description

      The work on DERBY-5762 changed the behavior of the USERNAME arguments to the NATIVE procedures. Now those arguments are case-sensitive only if you double-quote the username string. For example, the following calls affect the same user, EDWARD:

      call syscs_util.syscs_create_user( 'Edward', 'hisPassword' )
      call syscs_util.syscs_create_user( 'EdWard', 'hisPassword' )

      ...while the following call affects a different user, EdWard:

      call syscs_util.syscs_create_user( '"EdWard"', 'hisPassword' )

      The rule is this: without double quotes, the USERNAME argument is uppercased. To create camel-case or lowercase users, you need to double-quote the USERNAME.
