Yes, the file (s)he wants to commit already exists in the repository.
But I doubt it's a case-rename issue. Because TSVN checks before each
commit if there's a file renamed in case and (if one is found) renames
it back to what it was before (correcting the case).
I think this is just a collision of someone adding a file which someone
else already has added.
