I can't cause any breakage on my machine... In case sensitive mode it
doesn't normally generate the 8.3 filename. If you modify such a file
(even using DOS edit) it wipes the 8.3 entry on saving.
It won't be a problem on the server as the case sensitivity is only
active while cvs.exe is accessing the repository or its temp directories.
