The format is "Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive,Journaled)"
Does this lead to a solution of the problem? Thanks for helping, BTW!

That's the cause of the problem -- the volume on which the photo is stored is formatted as case-sensitive.
As a practical matter, LR, like many Mac applications, doesn't seem to like case-sensitive volumes, and LR is schizophrenic about filename case. The requirements state that it must be installed on a case-insensitive volume but don't say anything about photos stored on case-sensitive volumes. On the other hand, there have been a number of bugs reported where LR doesn't properly recognize differences in filename case on volumes that are case-insensitive.
I know of no official position by Adobe on whether LR supports case-sensitive volumes for photo storage. But given the past experience with numerous bugs around case-sensitivity, as a practical matter I think it's safest to avoid them.
I think you have two choices going forward:
- Make sure all your sidecars end in ".xmp".
- Convert the volume to case-insensitive. A Google for "os x convert to case-insensitive" shows some third-party solutions for doing that (of quality unknown to me).
