I agree that strcmp of tolower:ed strings would be a problem, but
Subversion uses libc's strcasecmp function for these comparisons, e.g:

    strcasecmp (word, "committed")

It sounds like a libc bug to me. I wonder if it would cause a similar
problem for some other locale if that was changed to

    strcasecmp (word, "COMMITTED")
