You are correct; svnserve improperly handles URI-encoded characters in
the path portions of some commands.

This bug was fixed on the trunk in r10353 as part of the fix for another
more theoretical issue. r10353 postdates the creation of the svn 1.1
branch by a couple of days, so it's currently scheduled for the 1.2
release. Because r10353 is a big fix for a larger issue, there are some
issues with naively backporting it to 1.1, but there are a couple of
avenues, and hopefully one of them will work out.

I'm not sure if there will be another general-bugfix 1.0.x release; if
there is, we could construct a narrower version of r10353 to fix this
problem, but I'm not sure if we will.

(Sorry for the complicated answer; it's a complicated situation.)
