This is exactly what happens if one uses a UTF-8 locale and then one
imports a directory tree containing non-UTF-8 names. There is no
validation of the names, they go straight into the repository and then
checkouts can fail.

You either need to manually convert the names to UTF-8 before
importing them, or use a non-UTF-8 locale and the client will convert
on the fly and send UTF-8 to the repository.

The trunk has code to detect the invalid name at import time and abort
the import.
