Can not checkout revisions which author name rev property contains ASCII control characters

Hello, SVN devs! I have recently encountered the following problem:
I tried to make a dir in a repository remotely and used an ASCII
control character ('\b' in particular) in my --username switch:

>svn mkdir file:///G:/materials/rep/test2 --username Sasha

Committed revision 442.

svn.exe committed without problems.

But when I tried to checkout what I had committed I got the following

>svn co http://localhost/materials/rep/test2 test5 --username garry --password garry
svn: Malformed XML: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 6

I looked at the corresponding .svn/log file, not at the 6th but at the
5th line I found my author name:


It seems to me that the problem is in this backspace symbol. Is it
expected behaviour that svn.exe crashes attempting to parse the log
