[TSVN] BUG: Case sensitivity when adding files

Hello Tortoise-Team!
 
I've found a problem, that influences the usability of a revision in a repo.
I changed the filename of a file (that is in the repo) in windows explorer
(just upper and lower case of the letters, name is the same).
After that, tortoise does not recognise the file as part of the repository and
lets you add it. I accidentially added the file and commited. Now i have two files with the
same name in the repo (just upper and lower case letters).
When I now try to check out a working copy with the head revision, i get an
error that the .svn-base of this file could not be copied to the .tmp file and the check out
process stops.
I know, that one should use the tortoise-rename function to change the name of a file,
but since it's the same filename with just other case and the filesystem of windows is
not case sensitive, tortoise should also recognise it as part of the repo with the case
modification.
 
Yours
Matthias Fuchs
