Subversion definitely should support this, since all file names in the
repository are encoded in UTF-8. There are two possible sources for this

    * In TortoiseSVN, if the file names passed to the Subversion
      libraries aren't converted to UTF-8 correctly.
    * Within Subversion itself, if the filenames aren't transmitted to
      the repository correctly.

We've had problrms with URL escaping in ra_dav before. Could you try
something, please? See if you can create a filename with Chinese
characters with the svn command line, then connect to your repository
with a Web browser and see if the characters you see there are the same.
