Shouldn't this better be named 'receive.denyCaseCloneRefs'? How about 'denyCaseInsensitiveRefs', 'denyIgnoreCaseRefs'? Is this entry really so important that it must be the first in the list of receive.deny* list, which is not alphabetically sorted? > + > receive.denyDeletes:: > If set to true, git-receive-pack will deny a ref update that deletes > the ref.

BTW, on a case-insensitive file system, is there not a chance that 'git rev-parse CaseClone' succeeds even though the ref is stored in victim/.git/refs/heads/caseclone? Perhaps you should inspect the output of 'git for-each-ref' for the expected result?
