I'll wait for newer svn, then. Not a great problem.

The few non-closed questions remain:

* why does svn go to such great efforts to generate error string
  (utf-8 conversion, oh my) just to discard it later?
* why utf-8 conversion enters infinite loop on garbage input?
  Isn't it a bug?
* why I don't see my own mails from the ml? ;)
