Perhaps Greek users would :)

Perhaps I'm showing my naiveté of foreign languages here but I imagine only Windows filesystem casing rules would be relevant as files get their case changed by things like visual studio.

I've just had to remotely debug why one of my users was received the old MKACTIVITY denied error (serves me right for posting a criticism of case-sensitivity to the mailing list, it got its revenge not half an hour later :( ) He had the files correctly cased, but not the repo name in the URL. It allowed him to checkout, but not checkin. Maybe that's a tortoise issue and not SVN, but still... it's annoying - especially where the error message is not clear, and the issue was not one of case-insensitive filenames.
