Re: rename command fails on OSX

Subversion cannot rename an item when you change only its case unless
the underlying filesystem is case sensitive. OSX and Windows
filesystems are case-preserving but not case-sensitive. You should be
able to rename this item directly in the repository and then run svn
update. Or rename it on Linux. Or rename it in two steps.:

svn rename .f90 to .F90-1
svn commit
svn rename .F90-1 to .F90
svn commit
