The same name used in the past can still be used on the new name, where that isn't true of a "real" rename.  ie, just because some editor changed the case of a file, no other windows program would be affected, so bzr should not either.

IMO it should be tracked as rename. Although it's not truly rename, but it is for bzr.

And I can change filename case in the command-line without problems:

C:\Temp\case>echo > foo

C:\Temp\case>dir /b

C:\Temp\case>ren foo Foo

C:\Temp\case>dir /b
