Re: WinXP Checkout From svnserve Fails Partway Through

That was exactly the problem. Thanks very much.

There were two files named: msactivecalls.htm and msActiveCalls.htm in the Linux

Linux this is OK because Linux can tell the files are different, due to case
sensitivity. But, when I checked out to WinXP it couldn't differentiate between
the two files, so lost one of them, due to case insensitivity.
