[TSVN] Locks are case-sensitive... (problem with windows)

Hi there,

We have found recently quite a big problem with locking file. Problem is with
case sensitive locks. Our company is WindowsXP based, so there are no case
sensitive checks, and locking file as “Anee.Smith” is as good as “anee.smith”.
But try to lock file as Anne.Smith and then release as anee.smith. It will
fail. It says that Anee.Smith has locked file, therefore anee.smith cannot
obtain its own lock.

Is there a way to force TortoiseSVN to use lowercase logins (or uppercase,
doesn’t matter)? System variable USER_NAME is always set to “Anee.Smith” even
if you login as “AnEE.SmiTH”, but TortoiseSVN/SVN sometimes lock files
as “anee.smith” and sometimes as “Anee.Smith”
