Use software that doesn't muck with the file name like that.

If you must use this software, you can certainly automate the
procedure of normalizing the filename before committing it.
Subversion does not have client-side hooks, so you would need to make
it a wrapper instead: you'd call your wrapper script, which would in
turn call svn commit.
