[TSVN] 1.1.5 Bug: TMerge destroys chinese UTF-8 characters

From: Norbert Unterberg <nepo_at_gmx.net>

TSVN Version 1.1.5 (the latest official released version)

TMerge is unable to handle chinese chacracters in UTF-8 text files.

Create a test.txt file with notepad, add some chinese characters and
save as UTF-8 (notepad adds the UTF-8 BOM). Add that file to any
repository and commit.
Now change something in that file.
Right-Click on the file and select SVN Diff (assuming you use TMerge as
diff application).
All chinese characters are disaplyed as questionmark '?'.

When you resolve conflicts on a file using TMerge, then TMerge replaces
all chinese characters with ???, which might completely destroy the file!

Another bug:
After the conflicts have been edited in TMerge, closing TMerge asks to
save the changes. If I hit Yes, then the file is also resolved in
Subversion (conflict files go away), although I have "Automatically
resolve conflicted ..." turned off.
