update problem on windows after svn move.

Hi...

Don't know whether this is already known or not, but there is an ugly
problem
when updating a working copy windows, where the filename was changed by
svn move, when the new filename just differs in case.

Imagine an user A working on unix:
He has a file called "myFile.c" in his working copy.
Imagine an user B working on Windows (using a cygwin compiled svn
commandline client) with the same working copy.
He has also a file called "myFile.c" in his working copy.

User A does "svn mv myFile.c myfile.c" and commits this change
User B wants to update his working copy.

This fails due to the fact the svn client now claims that there is already
a file with the same name in the working copy. Well windows is not
casesensitive and that appears to be the problem here.

This is really odd. Is this an already know issue and will it be adressed
once?

Thanks,

Roland

PS: User A/B and the server are running 0.37.0 subversion software
