Problem with capital file extensions when using the autoprops feature in the svn config file

Hi, everyone,

I'm using SVN 1.4.5 on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 with Apache 2.2.8.
Client-side I'm running Win XP SP2 with TortoiseSVN 1.4.7, Build 11792.
In my SVN config file I've got the following lines:

enable-auto-props = yes
*.jpg = svn:needs-lock=true;svn:mime-type=image/jpeg
*.JPG = svn:needs-lock=true;svn:mime-type=image/jpeg

If I add example1.jpg in TortoiseSVN everything works great. However, if I
add example2.JPG the autoprops are not applied, i.e. example2.JPG ends up
with svn:mime-type = application/octet-stream and svn:needs-lock NOT set.

If I configure my settings file like this, i.e. I switch the order of both
*.JPG = svn:needs-lock=true;svn:mime-type=image/jpeg
*.jpg = svn:needs-lock=true;svn:mime-type=image/jpeg

then only example2.JPG gets the correct props set, but example1.jpg
doesn't. I can reproduce that with other extensions (doc/DOC) as well.
I think that the entries in the config file should either both be
recognized or it should be case-insensitive. The way it is right now only
all lower-case or all upper-case works, which is not sufficient.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot,
