I'm not entirely sure what you mean to say, but I think there are two
possibilities:

1) svn_client__repos_locations was unable to handle non-ascii characters in
1.0, thereby effectively making this unsupported in 1.0;

2) svn_client__repos_locations was able to handle non-ascii characters in
1.0, but 1.1 introduces a change which is incompatible with the old code.
(Why the incompatibility?)

From what you say above, I conclude that we are now in situation (2). I
thought we were in (1).

If we are indeed in (2), then I think the commit violates the compatibility
rules. What can (needs to be) done to resolve that?

bye,

Erik.
