Absolutely!  The problem is not with CVS, as Larry has so eloquently
discussed, but with the repository you're trying to use.  If you want to
use a repository created from, and hosted on, a case-sensitive
filesystem then you'd damn well better do so with your working directory
on a case- sensitive filesystem, or face the consequenses of potential
filename clashes!

There's no magic here -- just pure plain common sense.
