That's a typical case of people not asking on the mailing list first. I
think the next comment to that issue will be exactly about the big red
box on the Subversion website before entering the issue tracker.

Now, about the issue: I have reported the very same thing about half a
year ago, and since there was data loss involved it even got fixed in a
reasonable timeframe. So my guess is that the person who filed that
issue is using a really, really old version of Subversion (or a RapidSVN
version linked to such an old version).
You won't loose data anymore because of such case-insensitive problems.
There still _are_ such problems around which require windows users to
sometimes do some more steps when updating, but you won't loose data
anymore.
