Use a less unreliable OS?

The copying is done in Perl, and so is out of our control. This may depend on the file system, and I've not seen this (nor have others reported it), except on Samba-mounted file systems, about which the FAQ says

   Your file system must allow case-honouring long file names (as is likely    except perhaps for some network-mounted systems).

So sorry, unless that is the explanation this is beyond our control.
