New submission from Kelly O'Hair <kelly.ohair at sun.com>:

If you have a directory (this is MacOSX but I assume any Unix system) where the
directory name only differs by case (e.g. TEST and test) any attempts to rename
the directory to the different name causes havoc.

00changelog.i   00manifest.i    data/





KellyMacBook<93> hg rename src/TEST/Junk.java src/test/Junk.java 
src/test/Junk.java: not overwriting - file exists
KellyMacBook<94> hg status
KellyMacBook<95> mv src/TEST src/test
KellyMacBook<96> hg status
? src/test/Junk.java
KellyMacBook<97> hg commit
nothing changed
