Em... I'm just trying to follow "How to report a bug" guide...
( http://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/issues.html#reporting-bugs ).
And, as far as I understood, once someone confirmed that it's a bug - you should re-post it to dev@....

>See http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2008-12/0288.shtml
But this message says "not to escalate *unanswered* questions" while I've got one answer, and it confirms that bug exists...

> That works fine for me on Linux, provided that I use a UTF-8 locale.
That's why I've explicitly mentioned OS...

If understood you properly, you're suggesting that Unicode characters might not work because of system settings.
I've already spent a lot of time, researching this subject: please see
        * step 7
        * notes in the end of my original message in this thread
                ( http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.devel/143413 ),
        * some related comments in batch file
                ( https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=8FD4EC3161ABA67A!916 ).
        * similar doubt ( http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessageId=3057707 ).
                and my answer to it: http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=4061&dsMessageId=3057924
It looks like Win7 itself works OK with Unicode in most cases, with the settings I've described.

In my original message in @users mailing list (http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.user/113541 )
I've started from:

No. You could have re-posted to users@, but to dev@ is inappropriate.

That works fine for me on Linux, provided that I use a UTF-8 locale. I would guess something similar is the problem on Windows. Please ask the TortoiseSVN guys: http://tortoisesvn.net/support.html
