If it's truly the case that we disallowed control character, then we
still have a bug. I was able to successfully get the log message in
(unmodified) by providing a bogus log message for the commit, and the
using 'svn ps' to set the svn:log message. It should have failed in the
same manner if we're disallowing control characters in log messages.
