Hello,

after upgrading the svn 1.7 I realized an issue.

When I add an empty UTF-8 file, it is added with mimetype
application/octet-stream
The empty UTF8 file has 3 bytes size - there are just the 3 mark bytes
0xEF 0xBB 0xBF

If there is an content in that file, it is handled correctly like text.

I've found a similar issue 2194 with UTF-16 files which status is REOPENED.

Regards
   Tomas
