It's one of a whole class of similar errors.  Namely, that while svn
clients are cross-platform, filesystems are not.  People get bitten by
illegal characters (like colons) in filenames.  People get bitten by
not using the same locale.  People get bitten by putting two files in
the same directory that differ only in case.

Probably good stuff for a new 'best practices' chapter.
