[TSVN] Possible case issue

From: Nicklas Norling <exinor_at_exinor.net>

I've just installed the latest 1.1.1 and I'm trying to check out netfilter.

I've got a WinXP SP2 system with NTFS file system.

1. Point TSVN checkout to http://svn.netfilter.org/netfilter/trunk with
folder C:\Develop\netfilter.

2. A few megs of code comes out and the checkout then stops at ip6t_HL.h.

3. After what seems like 20-30 seconds I get a dialog with an error:
"In directory 'C:/Develop/netfilter/iptables/inclide/linux/netfilter_ipv6'
Can't open file
text-base/ip6t_mark.h.svn-base': The system cannot find the file specified.

The only file I can seem to find relating to this are a few lines up in
the checkout
and is called ip6t_MARK.h.
However, the last two lines of the check out are of files ip6t_hl.h and
ip6t_HL.h and
these only differ in case. I'm suspecting that this isn't going to be
easy to checkout on
a windows machine, but the error stack is saying nothing about his and
the cryptic
messages only add to the confusion.

Trying to restart the checkout with update leads to 'WC locked' error.
cleanup gives the original error but now on the file ip6t_esp.h (well
it's tmp/text-base).
Removing the offending netfilter_ipv6 folder and rerunning clean and
update generates
the initial error again.

Wouldn't it be prudant to inform the user of the real cause of the
problems and possibly
try to checkout the rest of the code? Maybe even saving the second file
that only differs
in case with a temporary filename. I've been using TSVN for quite a
while but it took me
a long time to find the real problem.

What do you think?
