Then that's your problem. Subversion is case-sensitive. Windows is
not. As a result, you can get filename collisions on Windows which
don't exist anywhere else.

You'll have to rename one of the files in the repository (repo-browser
or svn mv with URLs) or in a WC on a system which is case-sensitive.
