    With case sensitive filesystem (ext4), Unity Linux Editor (2019.4.1) have problems if two files with same name but different cases are present in Assets folder.
    I've got some infinite loop import, infinite loop error messages, 'guid unititialized' error, and editor crashes.

    Even if I remove the files or parent directory, Unity can't open project correctly because they are still referenced in Library: Asset pipeline is corrupt.
    I think the only way is to remove the files and reimport all (8 hours with our project).

    I've found a solution to avoid full reimport: I've renamed the files in Library/assetDatabase3 with an hexadecimal editor (GHex).
