I think this type of error happens when the file "Foo" exists and svn
needs to add "foo". ie two filenames differing only in case. Note
that this is a windows filesystem limitation. (Try creating "foo.txt"
and "Foo.txt" with Explorer.) On linux this does not error.

I think you also get a similar error trying to replace file "foo" with
dir "foo" and vice versa.
