I'll want the pre-commit hook to deny any file with non-ASCII
characters in the name, accepting only files whose names have no
Portuguese characters will, I think, prevent further issues like this
one, or other that may arise related to encodings.
It is, actually, a rule we have talked about, amongst the developers,
and these particular files were the only exception, given they came
from a client and the person that put the files in the repository
didn't rename them.

Though as my experience with such issues is limited, and it may be
that creating the hook will be more of an annoyance than a feature.

Unfortunately, the all situation came in the middle of an iteration
where my attention needs to be all in the development and, as SVN is
working properly for the other developers, I'll have do postpone
solving the problem.
