I don't know of any solution, but am very much interested in one, or at
least a work around. (I know, the correct solution is called "Microsoft
fixes buggy software"...) Developers here have also been annoyed by
Visual Studio 2005 random case renamings. I was never able to reproduce
the Visual Studio problem on my machine, but according to developers
Tortoise did seem to be doing some kind of automatic adding of renamed
files which caused them to not notice the real problem and messed with
the file's history.
