[Haskell-Cafe] DARCS and case of file name letters

I have a file in my repo (HSX11/Xauthority.hs) and I want to rename it 
changing just case of one letter:

bash$ darcs mv HSX11/Xauthority.hs HSX11/XAuthority.hs 

darcs failed:  A file or dir named HSX11/XAuthority.hs already exists in 
working directory.

bash$ ls HSX11/X[aA]*.hs 


bash$ darcs --version 

1.0.3 (release)

DARCS was compiled by GHC 6.2.2.

bash$ uname -a 

Linux dmghome 2.2.16 #9 Mon Sep 16 22:43:25 EDT 2002 i686 unknown

Is it DARCS that ignores the case of letters in filenames, or the 
Haskell runtime?
