[Mono-dev] names differing only by case in git repo?

I cloned the mono/mono repo to a Windows machine, and no matter what I do,
my git status reports thusly:

$ git status
# On branch master
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
#       modified:   mcs/class/monodoc/monodoc.dll.sources
#       modified:   mcs/class/monodoc/monodoc_test.dll.sources
no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

Signs suggest this is due to files which differ only by case, which can
make Windows & OS X unhappy. I can commit the bogus change locally, but it
reappears when moving to a tag.
