Short answer: no, it doesn't.
Long answer:
TSVN doesn't change the locale settings of the OS. It changes them for
its own threads, but only on the UI part, not the shell part. In the
shell part, no locales are changed at all.

So there must be something else wrong with your setup.
Also, you haven't told us anything about what TSVN version you're using,
what OS your running, installed servicepacks, ...
Without that information it is impossible to even guess what's wrong.

Did you try to copy the xml file out of your working copy and try
reading it from there? Maybe your xml file got somehow changed in the
working copy (svn keywords, lineendings changed with svn:eol-style, ...).
