Non-ASCII characters are not allowed in a URI, so there is a bug if
something lets such characters in. My guess is that something strips the
repository root part from an URL and getting it wrong since the
%-escapings don't match. (We have had similar bugs before.)

That must be a bug in TortoiseSVN.

The name attribute is not an URL, but a path, so it shouldn't be

I don't think we should handle this situation, but maybe we should find
some way to error out, so it gets noticed earlier. I don't know enough
about how DAV handles wcprop to give a good answer here.
