Both OS/X and Win32 use the current locale information when performing
case-folding, as does Perl when 'use locale;' is in force.

The "problem" is that Subversion keeps track of the filenames in a
private text file and the file system doesn't care. It is Subversion
which notes that the file already exists when adding the second version;
if this could be made a warning in Subversion, the file system would
have no problem making do (literally copying the contents of the second
file on top of the first file).

Here is the FAQ answer on dealing with case issues:
