invoking rcs from emacs on vfat

for simple ascii files I use RCS invoked from Emacs
(vc-next-action: `C-x v v'). This works fine on linux file
systems (i.e. ext2/3). When the file is located on a vfat
partition it doesn't work as expected. To reproduce the error:

On a linux system open emacs with:

address@hidden:~$ emacs -q --no-site-file &

then open a file (`C-x C-f') junk.txt enter something and save it
(`C-x C-w /myvatmount/junk.txt') on a _vfat partition_. After
saving the file I would like to execute vc-next-action (`C-x v
v'; this works with a linux file system as expected). No matter
if I answer the following question (whether to create a RCS
subdirectory) with "yes" or "no" I end with the following error:

| RCS/junk.txt,v  <--  junk.txt
| initial revision: 1.1
| ci: RCS/junk.txt,v: Operation not permitted
| ci: saved in RCS/,junk.txt,

The vfat partition is mounted with "umask=000". 

Appears to be a case sensitive problem since the directory
created is named "rcs" and not "RCS". Is there a workaround for

It does tend however to give one a rather distorted view of the press!
