Issue tracker cleanup: SVN-807

For this week's issue, SVN-807 "gracefully degrade from failed charset
conversion":

This issue was created in 2002; I don't see any newer comments (the
only recent activity appears to be a property change made last year).

From the issue:

> Right now, if a log message contains characters that cannot be
> represented in the client's locale, that log message will simply show
> up as:
>
> "[unconvertible log msg]"
>
> Graceful degradation would be nice here :-).

Questions:

Is this still the case?

If we're not sure, how can this be tested? (i.e., how to create and
commit a log message that will cause this to manifest?)

Speaking of testing, is this related to last week's issue, SVN-2079,
which is unresolved, "SVN-2079 "utf8_tests.py should be made non-
iso8859-1 specific" and if one is solved, would that (help) solve the
other?

Thanks,
Nathan
