...so what about users using non-latin character sets? Surely not all subversion users are english?

We are using plain-text `Basic` authentication (over https!) so subversion should surely be able to send the characters entered by the user? The browsers manage it OK (IE6/IE8 and Opera 9+ (shush!) for me), just TortoiseSVN and the packaged command line subversion version does this.

Hmm, I'll try a different build to see if that makes a difference (when I get a chance to fiddle with the server again).
