I already experienced that on command line upper/lowercase
matters. Yes, case of folder names may have been changed,
though I suspect it was already on the old harddisk years ago,
transferred by copy on MO disk.

Too late, already threw away repository & working copies to start
from scratch - even more unsuccessfully as in the first attempt as
explained in my other mail to the list (.SVN folder question). Today
I return to regular work and leave versioning, can't afford another
week on this issue so helpful it might have been in the long run. It
would have been OK to work on a test site for another fortnight or
so to get accustumed to source control, but without even a basic
repository that is beyond dreams. Nevertheless thanks a lot for
your help, Stefan, but that's how things are.

So I could have done the initial check out and then set back
timestamps to those on the web server without harm. Well, as
said, too late ...

Best regards - God bless!
