Your patch changes subversion/tests/libsvn_subr/subst_translate-test.c ?

+# TODO: The makefile generator opens our source files in text mode, which
+# depends on the locale. We should either set the locale to a known value,

So does the C compiler, so I don't really see a problem.

There shouldn't be unescaped high 'ascii' in our source files.
