I did some more testing and found out that I have much more
problems if I use Subversion under windows (without any cygwin).

On Windows I get the same error with everything I do with the
file 'xx':
D:\Path\To\WC>svn info xx
svn: Safe data 'x' was followed by non-ASCII byte 228: unable to convert to/from UTF-8

D:\Path\To\WC>svn info svn://path/to/repos/xx
svn: Safe data 'svn://path/to/repos/x' was followed by non-ASCII byte 228: unable to convert to/from UTF-8

D:\Path\To\WC>svn info svn://path/to/repos/xäx
svn: Safe data 'svn://path/to/repos/x' was followed by non-ASCII byte 195: unable to convert to/from UTF-8

If I do a checkout I get the following:
[...]
A repostrans\x?\195?\164x
and the file is checked out correctly.

So this thread is now about to be two ones:

1. What can I do under Windows to get the special characters
being handled properly (I already tried seeting LC_ALL to
a lot of different values)?

2. (again) Why does everything except the properties
work well with the JavaHL (I still have the hope that
there can be changed something in the Subversion
code)?

Any help is appreciated

Mathias
