And then prevent it from happening again by adding the
check-case-insensitive.pl script to your pre-commit hook.
Find it in http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/contrib/hook-scripts/
or a svn source tarball.

FYI I'm currently modifying this script to fix performance when adding
to the root of large trees. I plan to submit a patch to the dev list soon.
