I don't understand; did you set the proxy info in your
~/.subversion/proxies file? Or in the windows registry, using the
.reg file posted on our downloads section? Either one should work.

Sorry, no dice. 0.13.2 was the "pre-alpha" release made just *before*
we started adding UTF-8/i18n stuff to subversion. If you build HEAD,
it might work... although we're still debugging this feature. (In

One other obstacle: at the moment, win32 support for i18n is in a bit
of flux at the moment. apr-* doesn't quite support i18n on win32 yet,
