I just did the experiment, and filename-insensitivity seems to be
breaking something.

I'm using an svn I picked up from http://www.codingmonkeys.de/mbo/.

I reformatted a memory stick to be case sensitive and co of


worked, then I made a directory in my home dir (normal mac thing) and
got the same error as above.

I can get a copy of the trunk, so I'm inclined to ask someone to
mention the problem on the wiki and then just ignore it.
