The repository stores all filenames as UTF8. When you do an 'svn
checkout', the filenames are converted from UTF8 to whatever locale your
local system happens to be using. Apparently, your Macintosh is using a
locale that can't deal with accents.

The only bug here is that the error message was unclear. We really need
to fix that. As others have mentioned, it should say something like
"failure decoding UTF8 path... try setting your locale differently."
Run 'man locale'.
