Bug: Need appropriate error message when two files have same name in windows but different names in unix

I know, the issue of case insensitivity and case sensitivity is not
new at all. I'm not asking to change that. I am saying that TSVN
should do a better job of telling the user what the problem is when
this problem occurs. SVN rocks. TSVN rocks.

- Put SVN repo on a unix box
- check out working copy in unix
- create file named foo
- create file named FOO
- add both files to repository
- check out working copy on windows
- see unhelpful TSVN error

error message is not helpful

error message should say something like "you have two files with names
that are different in unix but the same in windows... get a pre-commit
hook .. etc.. etc.."
if TSVN cannot determine that this is what is going on, it should list
possible causes "This might be caused by having two files ..... or it
might be because your head is shaped like a melon, etc... etc..."
