Subversion stores everything in UTF-8 internally, but when you checkout it
converts from UTF-8 to your locale. If you are using a locale that does
not support the characters in the filename, then it will fail. If you
make your locale UTF-8, then it should be able to handle all characters.

It is not likely that making your locale UTF-8 would cause any problems.

I would suggest that you recreate the problem with the Subversion command
line. Then take the issue to the Subversion users@ mailing list. That
will just widen your audience and likely lead to more definitive
