Re: svn cleanup doesn't work

I've seen cases where the working directory is locked and svn cleanup
either fails, or silently doesn't help. Those were caused by file
name conflicts on a case insensitive client.

The handling of case insensitive client filename conflicts is really
quite broken. Yes, you can avoid the problem with a pre-commit
script, if you know of it ahead of time. But if you don't, or if you
import the problem with a conversion from CVS (which had no problems
with this) then life gets really ugly with completely incomprehensible
error messages and bizarre malfunctions.
