problems checking out on windows

Hello list,

I think I read about this in the past, but did not find the right words to
find it again, so I set up a new thread.

I used subversion with tortoise svn on win xp pro.
I had a working project, and accidently renamed a file in case only. So the
file was named "TEST.txt" instead of "Test.txt".
The commit after this change worked fine, but the checkout failed.
I got an message like
"In directory temp\"
"Can't copy temp\ßtext-base\Temp.txt"2
"to tmp\Temp.txt"
"The system could not find the file"

I cut of the unimportend part of the filename.
If look in the log and the changed file, I see that the file is named
"TEXT.txt" now. So I think the connection between the file "Temp.txt" and
"TEMP.txt" is lost.

Stupid mistake, but I think svn should complain about this on the commit not
on the checkout, when it is too late.

I use tortoise 1.2.1 and svn 1.2.1 on win xp pro sp 2.

MY quick workaround was to make a "open" in the "show log" dialog of
tortoisesvn, which work fine, and restored the file content from this file on
a version before I made the rename.

Any one see this before ? Is there a fix for this or an open case ?

Thanks for your help
