Don't do that: running 0.33.1. Upgrade to 1.0+ if you want help...

OTOH this is a client problem, so I'm going to help: the error may not
be about the file contents (it probably is not: Subversion does not do
any conversions on file contents). Probably you told Subversion your
machine is running a UTF-8 locale, but in fact the file names are not.
In which case Subversion is trying to tell you that.

bye,

Erik.
