Filename case

I have the subversion server (svnserve) setup on a linux machine and our clients run on Windows 2000.

A problem occurred when I was checking out one of our repositories to a new directory. I received the following error: 'Object of the same name already exists.'

What I found out was that I had inadvertently checked in the same file under two different names. The first file name was DELETE.ICO and the second file was delete.ico. DELETE.ICO was checked in under revision 2 and delete.ico was under revision 4. Naturally under Linux, this represents two unique files but under Windows it doesn't.

My question is, is there a way to protect against this? In this scenario, the files DELETE.ICO and delete.ico are actually the same file.

Thoughts and ideas?
