RE: adding case-insensitive file duplicates on Windows

I have the script below installed and running...

(svn is on win32, perl is the cygwin version, so I've had to
change the svnlook path to be a cygwin path, and change all the
chomp lines to chomp; $_ =~s/^M//g; to get the script to work)

However, whilst this stops someone committing a file with a different case,
is there a way to get their working copy back to usable state?

If I try reverting the added file, and then updating the working copy I get
errors...

Can't copy 'C:/Sandbox/.svn/text-base/test.txt.svn-base' to
'C:/Sandbox/.svn/tmp.text-base/test.txt.svn-base.2.tmp': The system cannot find
the file specified.

(original file test.txt, added file was Test.txt)

Thanks.
