Not a limitation of Subversion, but of the filesystem/OS if it is not
case-sensitive (i.e. Windows). You can work around this in several ways;
two of the easiest are:
* Make sure any local changes are committed first, then perform the
rename on the URLs directly, such as: svn move
http://path/to/ABCException http://path/to/AbcException -m "Changed case
of ABCException". Then do a local update on your working copy.
* Check out another working copy on a case-sensitive filesystem/OS (such
as Linux), perform and commit the rename(s) there, then update your
working copy on Windows.
