Well, yes and no. The reason we have this in place is because it is
test data for our system which handles this case (in our case, we
rename the file with some underscores and numbers at the end).

While, I'm not saying that TortoiseSVN needs to handle it like we do,
we need to store data like this and we will. It will be annoying if
Tortoise keeps complaining that the data is modified, and was hoping
that it could somehow ascertain that there were two files there.
Maybe I'll have a look at the API to find anything (but I imagine
someone there would know it better than me already ;) ).
