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

Or to automatically fix it, that'd be great!

I have some files that Visual Studio replaces with lower-case, where
they originally were written as upper-case. This always makes me wonder
why the icon disappears from the view for that file... until I remember,
then have to find what the casing was and rename it.

It's probably impossible without svn changes though :(
