Case problem

Hi all

I work with cvs 1.11.1p1 on NT4.0 with a local repository. Usually it works
quite well. But sometimes it has a problem with filename cases like the

cvs.exe -q -n update N:\Temp\Pec3kcvs4

U N:\Temp\Pec3kcvs4/OS/Src/CINOSFixed32.cpp
U N:\Temp\Pec3kcvs4/Os/Src/CINOSFixed32.cpp
cvs.exe update: warning: N:\Temp\Pec3kcvs4/OS/Src/CINOSFixed32.cpp was lost
cvs.exe update: warning: N:\Temp\Pec3kcvs4/Os/Src/CINOSFixed32.cpp was lost

I found out that this can happen if the name in Entries (here OS) is written
with different case than the actual file-/dirname, or maybe the checked in name. I don't know why cvs looks at this file/dir twice, but it does it with different case
and doesn't recognize the "same" filename. No need to tell me that *ix is case
sensitive whereas Windoze is not. I believe I once read about a switch to tell
cvs to behave case-insensitive... or maybe not :)

bye  Fabi
