Tried with Nightly Build TortoiseSVN 1.4.0, Build 6438.
If I choose "Add..." on the file directly, TSVN shows me an empty error message box.
If I use "Add..." from the parent folder it displays "x" for re-addition and not

Works correct. TSVN rectifies the file name:

Progress dialog:
|Replacing: C:\path\to\file\x
|Sending content: ...
|Completed: At revision: ...

If you delete a file an then add it again it gets replaced. So it should be
displayed as modified in the log, I think.

TSVN tries to rectify the case of a file, but that seems to fail if that file is
 marked as deleted.

See http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/node/167 and

There is a action "Replacing" listed in the changed paths for me. (BTW:
shouldn't that be "Replaced" according to "Deleted", "Added" and "Modified"?)

All in all, it is a little bit confusing, since the overlays are case-sensitive,
but the dialogs are not. Or better: they correct the filename in most cases.

Maybe it is only a issue in 1.3.x?
