Good point. I guess the only ways to solve this properly are:

a. Remove the LastChangedDate keyword from this file,
b. Restrict the LastChangedDate to US English/ASCII (yuk), or
c. Provide some way to inform Subversion about the encoding of the file.

I'm pretty sure we already have an issue for this :-)
