      Description

      Hello,
      
      If there are two error messages I truely hate then those two which are 
      displayed on "svn update"
      
      svn: Failed to add file 'mingw/SCRIPTS/Make_GCC.zsh': object of the same name 
      already exists
      svn: Failed to add file 'mingw/SCRIPTS/Make_GCC.zsh': object of the same name 
      is already scheduled for addition
      
      And what realy upsets me is: It's the very same file.
      
      So here my Enhancement request:
      
      Compare the file in the repository with the file in the work copy - if they are 
      the same then all is good, no need for an error message, update done. This 
      would solve 9 of 10 cases in which such a confict happens.
      
      If they are not the same you could display the current error message or - 
      better - treat them like a normal merge/confict.
      
      Martin
