RE: Accent in file names, some new tests

Loc,

to help you out with this "dj vu", I'll quote an excerpt from a message by Christian Barkey:

---------------8<-------------------------------
On my Windows XP PC I have also installed TortoiseSVN which, same as for you, works
like a charm. But the commandline tools all failed for international characters. The environment variable APOR_ICONV_PATH is also set on this PC, but points to the
installation of TortoiseSVN. I assumed, this is the reason, why Tortoise works well and svn not.
I modified the variable to point to my installed subversion directory/iconv and, *wow*,
now I'm able to work on files with these funny characters in it with the commandline
tools.
---------------8<-------------------------------

Hope this helps. I'm not an XPert, but Christian seems to have solved this
satisfactorily...

Regards,
-Manfred
