[X] vs. [x]

Are there any languages in which [x] and [X] actually contrast phonemically?
The IPA's use of distinct letters (as opposed to diacritics) suggests
that it is so, but I've never encountered one. Languages with an /x/
seem to render it as either [x] or [X], one form usually being preferred.
