Problem with accented letters and copy/move

Hi all,

I had problems with accented letters and svn 0.35.1: one repos_
did contain a file "ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali" and given that
several other tools have problems dealing with such names, I decided
to get rid of it, renaming the file to simply DatabaseRelazionali.

With "svn mv ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali DatabaseRelazionali"
I got "svn: Can't recode string: Invalid argument". I then tryed a
remote operation, feeding "Connettivit%E0ADatabaseRelazionali.rst" as
requested by the URI specs, and this gave "svn: Path
'http://.../Connettivit%E0ADatabaseRelazionali.rst' does not exist in
revision '288'". Trying a copy operation triggered the same errors.

Strangely, all other commands do works ok, I was obviously able to do
a "svn add ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali" in the beginning, and
"svn log ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali" works too, as do both local
and remote "svn ls" that correctly lists the filename...

Given that the history of those files were not so fundamental, I gave
up, and did

$ cp ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali.rst DatabaseRelazionali.rst
$ svn add DatabaseRelazionali.rst
A DatabaseRelazionali.rst
$ svn rm ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali.rst
D ConnettivitÓADatabaseRelazionali.rst

and finally committed, without any trouble.

I will happily tarz the repos_ and share it, if needed for any purpose
:)

Should I insert an issue?

thanx&bye,
lele.
