The allegedly correct way to do what you wanted to do is described here:

http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#case-change

Unfortunately it does not describe how to get yourself out of the
situation you find yourself in now...

When we had a similar problem here, we trashed the messed-up working
copy and pulled a new one. But if you have other changes in the working
copy that may not be practical...
