 It can? Any ASCII string is necessarily a UTF-8 string. I'm curious
 what's going on here.

It's native, not ASCII.

 (And, you have been deceived into using the wrong terminology by
 confusingly-named svn_utf functions. A cstring can hold UTF-8 or
 native-charset data.)

OK, I'll correct the log message:

Patch from Fumitoshi UKAI ukai@debian.or.jp. Passing a native
string through UTF-8 to cstring conversion can produce rubbish if the
native string contains non-ASCII characters.
