SVN switches my codepage on Win32

Here's what I get:
Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

C:\>svn help

Type "svn help <subcommand>" for help on a specific subcommand.

Most subcommands take file and/or directory arguments, recursing
on the directories. If no arguments are supplied to such a
command, it will recurse on the current directory (inclusive) by

You can see that SVN switched my code page while it ran. Is there
something I can do to prevent that ? I am running a French Win2K SP3
with French (Canada) regional settings. This is with SVN 0.23.0, but the
same thing happens with 0.24.2.

This is a problem for me since after I run any SVN command my display is
filled with "special" characters. For instance, the DIR command does not
use a comma to separate the thousands, but some other one. On the 1252
CP, the same character is an A with a grave accent. Not the best

This problem has been bugging me since I began using Subversion, and I
had time to report it today.

I could not find any issues with a summary containing "cp" or "codepage".

Thanks !
