Re: failed to add file <snip> object of the same name already exists

Seems the issue is case sensitivity in the file system. I found this thread
and others that discussed it.

http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=dev&msgNo=40115

While I understand the discussions in the threads it would seem to me there
is a better why then just killing the rest of the checkout. Maybe a report
saying these files have errors on checkout or something. I can fix the
issue by editing the dump file or maybe there is a better way which I don't
know of. I am a very new user of subversion.

But case sensitivity is a fact of life on a windows machine. Having some
way to handle this issue without editing the dumpfile is a major plus.
Luckly I am now a consultant and so I have control of this issue. If this
would have happened when I was a lead programmer for my last company it
would have been the end of Subversion at that company.
