I can't reproduce this with:

>>> sys.version
'2.3.4 (#53, May 25 2004, 21:17:02) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)]'
>>> sys.getwindowsversion()
(5, 0, 2195, 2, 'Service Pack 4')

It seems to be fully case insensitive, so it doesn't matter if I do
del os.environment['foo'] or ..['Foo'] or ..['FOO']
everything works.

Which python version are you using?
