My understanding was that Subversion log entries are always stored as UTF-8 in the repository, and that the conversion to and from your system's character encoding, if different from UTF-8, are handled by your client, in response to things like (on UNIX-like operating systems) the LANG environment variable (not sure what Windows uses for that).
