Another non-UTF8 filename issue

From: Hans Salvisberg <svn.dev_at_salvisberg.com>

I run a Drupal CMS (written in PHP) on a SuSE Server under Apache, and one of the users has uploaded a file which causes svn 1.4.3 to choke:

  svn: Can't convert string from native encoding to 'UTF-8':
  svn: Kurs Ern?\195?\164hrung.doc

ls shows the file name as

  Kurs Ern??hrung.doc

The file name should be "Kurs Ernährung.doc", and it probably orginated from Windows.

PHP may have messed up this one, but the file is there, and it's fully accessible in Drupal. The filename displays correctly on the web page (charset=utf-8), and the file can be downloaded.

I haven't tried adding it to the repository yet, the error appears when doing

  svn st

reiserfs supports this type of file name -- shouldn't svn support it, too?
