Windows uses a case insensitive file system, whereas Linux uses a case sensitive file system.
Most likely, you have files and/or directories that are spelled differently only in capitalization.

If you perform "svn list" from within the working copy, you should be able to inspect the
output for any objects that might differ only in case.
