... and you both need to read the manual, or the FAQ.

Remember that a subversion repository can be read by clients on
case-sensitive file systems as well as by Windows clients. Subversion
has to preserve the case, otherwise Linux and other clients could end up
with multiple copies of a file, all differing only in case.

Maybe it could be handled better, but if you want to complain you need
to do that on the Subversion user list.
