Win98 isn't really capable of handling international chars. It can
handle them if the OS is of the same language as the special char
belongs to, but that's all. E.g. you can't use pathnames with chinese
chars in them on an english Win98.

I think this is a problem with Win98 ;)

No seriously: TortoiseSVN has released a special version for Win98 in
the past, but the next release (and all future releases) will only work
on win2k and later. It's just not worth the effort working around all
the limitations of those ancient OSes.
