[TSVN] Windows Case Sensitivity Bug

From: BrTetzlaff <BrTetzlaff_at_wi.rr.com>

        I would like to report a possible bug that results from the fact
that the Windows file system is not case sensitive. One of the other
developers in my team renamed "resource.h" to "Resource.h" and
TortoiseSVN thinks those are different files, but Windows treats them as
the same file since it is case insensitive. When I try to update, it
fails to update the files with the case change. I would like it to
change the case on the file if it is changed, but not to think that
these are different files. This is not a major problem and I can work
it out of the system sometimes. However, if there is a way to fix it
for the Windows version of TortoiseSVN that would be greatly
appreciated. The server that holds the repository is a Windows 2000
system and I am running the TortoiseSVN client on Windows XP Pro.

TortoiseSVN has been working very well otherwise.

Thank you,

        Bradley Tetzlaff
