I’ve had co-workers get in trouble with file renames and case sensitivity on Mac OS X, but I’ve always been able to fix issues on Debian and tell them to hg pull --update.  I don’t remember if they had to create a new clone, or update to an older revision without the troublemaking files.

Anyhow, I don’t think this bug is important.  +0 for renaming the README to README.txt and configuring hgeol to make end-of-lines native.  That would solve the problem of a potential new contributor on Windows cloning the repo and not sure how to read the readme file at the repo root.  Changing the case of the readme.txt files would not solve any problem.
