Windows filesystems are case insensitive (by default), it's not really
CVS's problem...

I strongly suggest you contact the tortoisecvs newsgroup (see and the cvsnt newsgroup (who make the cvs client
included in tortoisecvs).  Getting the -P flag turned off is something people can help you with - getting the case sensitive
driver for windows is something the folks can help with.

The easiest option I think would be to rename the folder "foo" on the
server to "foobar" (if you really don't use it anymore).
