This sounds like the classic case-sensitive file name collision problem.
I'm assuming you're encountering this problem on Windows. Check to see
if there's another file in the repository that has the same name as that
file, but with a diffferent case (upper instead of lower).

This happens because the standard Windows file system doesn't
differentiate between upper case letters and lower case ones in file
names, while most other operating systems do.

You can install a precommit hook to check for case-sensitive file name
collisions (contrib/hook-scripts/check-case-insensitive.pl (in the
source code download), for instance).
