Also, you may want to check for a "case-conflict" of that particular
file inside your repository. I.e. two files with filenames that only
differ in case (e.g. pgms.tar.bz2 and Pgms.tar.bz2). This can give
problems when checking out on a case-insensitive filesystem (which may
manifest itself with an error such as this one).
