Is there a bug here? It looks like the second time, Eric typed
"svn add test.txt", but the file was named TEST.TXT, and subversion
added it as TEST.TXT. I agree that if subversion added it as test.txt
that would be a bug, but I don't see any evidence that that's what
subversion is doing.

good times,

int main() {
    puts("Reader! Think not that \n"
         "technical information \n"
         "ought not be called speech;");
    return 0;
