Changing file case on Windows then doing a merge fails.

From: Martin Tomes <lists_at_tomes.org>

We had a file called ITools.pas and wanted to call it iTools.pas,
windows being case insensitive this was done in two passes, pass one was
to rename it to _iTools.pas and commit then rename it to iTools.pas and
commit again.

Both these changes were then merged to a release branch as part of a
larger merge from the trunk. It failed because the working copy code
tries to keep copies of ITools.pas and iTools.pas at the same time and
it cannot. Once the commit fails revert also fails.

Is this a known issue? I cannot tell as tigris.org is giving 'Internal
server error' messages.
