Interesting, though not applicable in my case.  There are no additional
files in this directory, generated, backup or otherwise.

There's a rename-case-sensitivity in the bug list already, hopefully it
will be addressed soon.

Move away errors - commonly occur under windows file systems because
many editors lose the case of the file.  A file which is all upper case
or all lower case appears to be lower case, but in actuality is upper
cased.  A file with mixed case will appear correctly.  I have run into
this MANY times after editing with lame editors that saved files as all
upper case.  I use FAR by ( and it displays the actual
case of files... not sure how to do this otherwise... but you can try
just doing a 'rename' which will fix the case (
unless it was actually in upper case when you checked it in - have to
check CVS/Entries to see what it actually wants ) So - although windows
uses long file names and allows cases - for backwards compatibility it
assumes all upper case is lower case, and forgets to tell anyone - but
apparently the test within CVS even on windows is case sensitive.
