These aren't ASCII codes.

To avoid any confusion, I must point out that ASCII only defines codes
between 0 and 127, inclusive.

First of all, you have to find out what actually happened. How did you
find out the URL of that file? The one you gave isn't encoded in UTF-8
(the leading 0x80 isn't a valid UTF-8 code), so you must figure out what
the encoding is. Once you do that, François' recipe would probably work.

I wonder what TortoiseSVN is doing with the filenames under the hood...
