Windows treats file paths case-insensitive, but Subversion treats them
case-sensitive.
If TSVN would 'fix' the case here, you could get problems if there are
two paths in the repository just differing in case: you'll never be able
to 'fix' this in the repository.
Also, how could TSVN even know before trying the command what the
correct case would be?
