It's been worrying me that I've been the only person to report this problem. But now finally there's one more report (http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.user/19747). I used apimonitor (http://www.rohitab.com/apimonitor/) to look at the sequence of file system calls. If you run it on a working Win98 setup, it could give some clue as to why it runs in some setups. (But I couldn't use apimonitor on the command line svn, and so used it on TortoiseSVN 1.1.0 instead.) On Mon, 25 Oct 2004 Greg Hudson wrote: >Not really.

I'd tried using svnserve on Win98SE with svn 1.1.0, but it didn't work (the error was presumably transferred to the server side). With svn 1.1.1, svnserve gives the `Can't convert module path to UTF-8' error for me (issue 2091).

If some workaround like the one mentioned above is feasible, it would be very nice to have it. (And all this probably holds for WinME also.) jjs
