Have you tried using a newer Subversion? And can you tell us the name
of the directory (perhaps by just listing the hex or decimal byte
representations of it) so that we can test this out?

Finally, you should be able to run 'svnadmin dump' on your repository,
edit the resulting dumpfile (replacing all instances of your
wackily-named directory with something not-so-wackily-named), and then
'svnadmin load' that dumpfile (see the Subversion book online at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com for more on dumping and loading).
