Actually, it is very case sensitive when it comes to the name of the
file and name of the class defined in that file. Got crushed by this
very problem on a Windows machine just the past weekend. I did the
rename, but Windows didn't see it as a change, and thus SVN committed
my changes in the old file name. Had to check the working copy out on
Unix to fix it. Worse yet, it made getting the changes back on Windows
a pain..had to delete that part of the working copy to get things back
to right.
