Thanks for the clarification. It turns out that there were probably non
UTF-8 log messages coming from a conversion from CVS that triggered the
original report.

Anyway, having the encoding explicitly in the XML declaration (original
request in the issue) could avoid further confusion. I more or less
assumed that since svn log was locale-dependant, svn log --xml would
also be.
