Drop-down list auto-complete

The drop-down list of recent URLs displayed whenever doing a checkout,
export, repo-browser, etc. has a nice auto-complete feature, which turned
into a problem for some of our users.

Context: We recently applied more restrictive user rights, and since SVN
server-side user rights management is case sensitive, some users have had
to redo proper checkouts (with proper repository names, capital-wise).

Now the problem: If you type in, say, http://123.123.123.123/svn/MYREPO into
the drop-down list, it stays there in the list as an available
"auto-complete item" for further checkouts or operations. Now, let's say you
type in http://123.123.123.123/svn/myrepo into the drop-down list, it
auto-selects the capital version (MYREPO)! If you type it in again (some
time twice or thrice), it will finally accept the new input (in small
letters). So the users have to visually check everytime they do their
checkouts, because the checkout will work if the letter-case is incorrect
(read rights seem to be case-insensitive) but when they will try to commit,
it will inevitably fail (and then they loose time fixing their local
folders).

I just thought I would report the issue, I don't expect any fix on this
since it's just a bit annoying, nothing critical.

Thanks!
