Yes, because it is Subversion, not TortoiseSVN which is case-sensitive.

It is certainly not a bug. And why is this such a big problem for you?
You can install a server hook to prevent committing files with names
that differ only in upper/lower case.

So what should Subversion do if the repository contains resource.h and
Resource.h? It cannot checkout both of them into the same folder. The
way to stop this is to install a hook to prevent the repository
containing those 2 files in the first place.
