You have two files with the same name in the same dir in your
repository: ACURSOR.VCX and acursor.vcx. This is perfectly valid in
svn and Linux, but illegal for Windows.

I'm guessing you were working with some utility that modified
acursor.vcx and resaved it as ACURSOR.VCX, deleting the original. When
you did an 'svn st', you noticed ACURSOR.VCX had a '?' next to it and
added it.

You should remove the duplicate file using a URL:
svn rm svn://svn.personalware.com/MarcStel/LIBS/acursor.vxd -m 'Removing duplicate file'

Then in the working copy.
svn up acursor.vxd
svn up
