Problem checking out an empty repository on Win XP with international characters in user name

Hello everyone,

Here is SVN's version information:
D:\>svn --version
svn, version 0.17.1 (r4503)
   compiled Jan 23 2003, 00:00:57

Copyright (C) 2000-2003 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.tigris.org/

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
  - handles 'http' schema
  - handles 'https' schema
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network
  - handles 'svn' schema

My user name contains a C cedil: François. I am using Win XP, pre-SP1.
I downloaded the Zip file version and copied the files to a folder. From
the command line, I executed the following:
D:\>svnadmin create repo

D:\>svn co file:///repo wc
svn: Invalid argument
svn: Safe data:
"Fran" --- That looks to be the start of my user name.
... was followed by non-ascii byte 231.

Non-ascii character detected (see above), and unable to convert to UTF-8.

This is mostly to report the bug, although it would be nice to have SVN
work on my machine too :)

Thanks for the great work !
François Beausoleil
