As the subject indicates, the 'svn up' command can revert all local
modifications on a case insensitive filesystem like Windows and OSX have.



Edit this file with an editor. Then save the modifications. Now, some
editors on Windows change the case of the filename. Either to all
lowercase or all uppercase. Especially some older editors change the
case to all uppercase. That means we get


now, if we do an 'svn up', the file will get reverted to
and all local modifications are gone.

I already added this to the issue 667
(http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=667) but I wanted
to point this out on the mailing list too since the issue tracker isn't
suited for discussions.
