Confusing Windows svn error

From: Mason Thomas <mlt_svn_at_sbcglobal.net>

I downloaded the 0.16 win32 version of svn to give it a try, and after
overcoming some path naming problems it seems to work fine. However I
get a strange error message here:

C:\SVN\temp>..\svn commit
svn: Invalid argument
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Non-ascii character (code 139) detected, and unable to convert to
UTF-8.

this really occurs because I did not include a commit message:

C:\SVN\temp>..\svn commit -m "Added outline and notes"
Adding file.txt
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 1.

The original error message might be more useful if it said something
like "Commit failed, commit message required". Although the above error
message might also point to a deeper problem? Or it might be fixed in
the current win32 svn :-)
