Description Eric Beisecker 2012-04-02 10:27:23 UTC
When trying to change the case of a Folder Name in MonoDevelop an error is displayed informing the user that a folder by that name already exists.

This is an issue for me too. I'm using Xamarin Studio 4.2.3 (build 59).

I'm renaming this folder from "engine" to "Engine".

Related to this bug, but I guess it wasn't fixed for folders.

I can change cs files, such as from "Cubemap.cs" to "CubeMap.cs"
