    This can be closes as I just found out that the problem is that table names are not case sensitive, even if they are listed with case sensitive names.

    Yes, table names are case insensitive in SQL and SQlite. However, SQLite stores them case senstive and thus we display them case sensitive. So some people may want to do case sensitive renames. That's why with commit 50313cd it is now possible to to case sensitive renames in phpLiteAdmin. This feature uses our ALTER TABLE workaround that we also use to rename views and SQLite 2 tables (as this is not supported by SQLite).
