case problems on Windows

I am having problems renaming files where I am just changing case.
Here is an example:

I check out 2 copies of a project on Windows XP.

in copy 1:
touch a
svn add a
svn commit -m ''

in copy 2:
svn update

in copy 1:
svn move a b
svn commit -m ''
svn move b A
svn commit -m ''

in copy 2:
svn update

This generates an error, so I try:

svn update a
svn update

Now I get:

svn: Can't copy '.svn/text-base/a.svn-base' to
'.svn/tmp/text-base/a.svn-base.tmp': The system cannot find the file

And now there is nothing I do but delete the whole directory and check
it out again. Can't subversion handle this better somehow?
