How should that work with locale tr_TR? There is no upper-case "i" in that locale. Thats the main reason we introduced GeneralUtility::strtoupper in the first place, to make sure it works regardless of locale on all ASCII chars.
Just try that out:
<?php setlocale(LC_CTYPE, 'tr_TR.utf8'); echo strtoupper('abcdi') . "\n";
The locale can be set in TypoScript by the user (config.locale_all). This broke many turkish sites back then (I think it was introduced with PHP 5.3). This still works like that in PHP 7 (at least under Linux - not on Mac!).
Maybe I am missing something?
