AW: fast-import fails with case sensitive tags due to case insensitive lock files

Hi Brian,

Thank you very much for your answer!

Unfortunately I am stuck with Windows 10 1703 which neither supports case-sensitivity nor any Linux subsystem from the Microsoft Store :( Also, my employer unfortunately doesn’t allow me to invest the time to implement reftable, so I guess I go with manually leaving out the one conflicting label I found and tagging it manually afterward.

One thing I still would like to encourage to is to improve the error message which is really misleading in this case.

Best regards and thanks again,
Jonathan
