This isn't enough. The problem is that e.g. NTFS maintains case, but does not
enforce it (how stupid can you get?). So even if you change the case on the
server via direct URL edits, the WC file will not change case unless you
actually delete the file and check it out again.

For evidence of this, try and use either File Explorer or a command prompt and
try and rename a file to a different case...
