Allocating extra memory on the heap just to chop off one character
before comparing doesn't look like the right thing to do... The problem
is that we probably cannot leave the strings as-is without writing our
custom strcmp() implementation or doing some strncmp() magic (I didn't
look into strncmp() in detail), though.

Even if you want to keep it simple and use strdup(), you could
initialize "strA" and "strB" with pointers to the original strings and
move the strdup() into the two if-branches. Note that in this case, you
will also add one additional check to the free() statements but this
will remove the need for heap and copy operations for the majority of
files, won't it?

Also, why do we use mixedCase for variables here (same applies to the
patch you submitted before this one)?
