FIX: Can't rename a catalog item with the same name in different case in SSRS 2016

Symptoms
When you rename a catalog item by using the same name in different case, the name can't be changed as expected. For example, you have a folder named "ABC", if you rename the folder to "abc", the change doesn't take effect after you click Apply. Although the navigation may display the changed name, it reverts to the original name when you refresh the page.

Note The navigation obtains the name value of the catalog item from the path of the URL.
