        Actually... in my case I commited a filename with one case,
then decided I needed to change it because Tomcat is case-sensitive
(don't you get me started on that garbage...) and so I ran into this
problem. The problem is mixing of unix and win32 tools and you don't
have to have a mixed team (unix and win32) to run into this problem. It
is enough to use poorly ported tools from unix.
