I found a solution for my original problem (many thanks
to Patrick):
As my Java is the one from windows there are some windows
things to remember. One is the APR_ICONV_PATH environment
variable. After setting it to the iconv path from the
Subversion windows distribution everything works fine -
JavaHL as well as the windows command line client.

So the only thing still open is the question why
getting properties for a path with special characters
in its name is (until now) the only point when using
JavaHL where I need the iconv path whereas anything else
(I have used until now) works without it.

Thanks four your help!

Mathias
