filename case renaming issue (FAQ A.2.4)

Hopefully someone can help clarify what I'm doing wrong here....

1) rename using TortoiseSVN menu rename from "test.h" to "Test.h_".
2) commit
3) rename using TortoiseSVN menu rename from "Test.h_" to "Test.h".
4) commit
5) update local copy (for grins)
6) move to _another_ workstation and run update command. Note: If I run
update from the same workstation I will not get the following error
7) get error message "Failed to to add file '<....path...>/Test.h':
object of the same name already exists"

I know of the renaming issue from the docs (FAQ A.2.4 Solution B) and
this is what I think I'm doing.

Now if I delete the parent folder (on the other workstation) of the
file that gave the error message while updating and then update It will
work fine. I believe this is part of Solution A. My question is this:
Am I doing something wrong while following Solution B. Or does Solution
B need to be reworked to include deleting the parent folder as well on
any other workstation using this file. If the latter is the case, then
this poses a dilemma to other users every time someone renames the case
of a file. For they will need to be careful to backup the contents in
the parent folder before they delete it. Then merge the changes back in

Thanks for the help in advance. And I would be glad to update the FAQs
if needed in either case.
