The question has been asked and answered repeatedly over the past months. It's
usually couched in terms like "This has to happen now! The many VS.NET users
will be unable to use Subversion otherwise!" This kind of attitude doesn't help
matters; no matter what M$oft uses in their advertising, VS.NET is still a small
fraction of development.

To paraphrase the frequent answer: it is a known problem, it will be fixed, we
don't know when, it wasn't important enough to hold 1.0.0 up for. You can use
the same answer for the problem with renaming files which differ only in case on
Win32 systems, which is similarly a self-inflicted problem caused by the Borg of
Redmond... ;~)
