TortoiseSVN bug report

From: Bill Dugan <bdugan_at_torpexgames.com>
Date: Tue, 1 Jun 2010 16:12:58 -0700



Bug summary: Our repository, hosted by wush.net, had these files (among
others!) in it:







The result was that on one of our Windows 7 machines, the latest TortoiseSVN
GUI gave incomprehensible error messages to us when updating, until at last
we detected the issue, renamed the older two files in the repository so the
filenames didn't conflict, deleted the entire local directory, and updated.
Unfortunately this took us six hours to determine and fix the problem today.


Desired behavior: Alert us when conflicting filenames (meaning, differing
only in case) are present in the repository, and name the files, so we can
go rename some of the files in the repository. From a design standpoint I'd
like this to occur every time the client updates, but I'm ignorant as to
whether this would cripple performance. If it does cripple performance,
maybe the dialog box that occurs upon a "Clean Up" command could have a
button you could press to have TortoiseSVN go and scan the repository for
conflicting-in-case-only filenames.


I can supply details of the error messages if needed. This was seen on a
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit machine, using accounts both with and without
admin rights.
