Failed to add file, object already exists. Case is correct

   I did a svn add on a file called mainpage.jpg. The add was successful.
When I do an update, I am getting the error 'Failed to add file
'mainpage.jpg': object of the same name already exists.' and the update
does not complete. Searching on that error, I found it may be caused by
the mixed case in the file name. The name is all lower case. However, the
directory is mixed case. It is a windows machine, I'm not sure how to get
around the problem, since the name I am using is correct.
Thank you,

Loretta Bandera
