Re: Bug Report - user names are case sensitive

Using Windows XP I had to notice, that the windows user name differs if
I log in with or without network connection. Even if I entered my name
in lower case letters, it was uppercase, if the network/ domain was not
available. Therefore entering the name in the same spelling does not
alway help. As described somewhere in the Subversion documentation you
should enter the usernames in the svnserve files in all possible spellings.
