The latter.

Ok. I've created a small testcase and reproduced the isse. I then
converted all the files to UTF-8, and re-ran cvs2svn.py, setting LANG to
an UTF-8 locale. Then, the created repository worked ok, so this is the
route I will take.

This means that cvs2svn.py can be fixed by checking the locale's charset
and converting from it to UTF-8 by running "iconv -flocale -tUTF-8".
