Sounds like an issue you need to take up with Microsoft.

I think you misunderstand...
You simply write a pre-commit hook and place it in your repository's
hooks directory. From your pre-commit hook script, you can call case-
insensitive.py to prevent commits of files whose names would differ
from existing files only by case. You can read more about hooks in

You're correct. It prevents incorrect commits.
pre-commit hook scripts cannot change incoming transactions; they can
only prevent those that do not pass whatever criteria you want to set.

Not that I'm aware of.
