I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you're saying here. Line 83 was
removed in the left file (the BASE), and added in the right file (your
working copy). That happens every time you modify a line (old line
removed, new line added in the same place, effectively the line is

I would consider this a bug in VFP (holding a file exclusively open). Of
course in that case Subversion can't update that file at all.
I agree however that the working copy should not get corrupted by this.
This issue has been reported on the Subversion mailing list, but I don't
know if someone is working on it or not.

That's how Subversion works on windows. Subversion itself is
case-sensitive, but the windows file system is not.

Maybe someone can write a script to do it. But of course, VFP would have
to provide a COM interface and have the ability to compare its own files.
