The client cannot do very much about this as the checkout can never
properly succeed. A decent error message is the best one can hope for.

The proper solution to this is to prevent the addition of files whose
names clash and this can be achieved with a pre-commit hook. There is a
Perl script in contrib now and a better Python one is about to be added
to the Subversion repository.
