Subversion can't do this, because it doesn't 'understand' utf16 (what
you call unicode). It treats those a binary. And binary files don't have
lines, so blaming isn't possible.

But as I already mentioned in a previous mail:
remove the svn:mime-type property from the file (make sure it is in utf8
format or ANSI, *not* utf16 when you do that).
After that, you can blame the file - but of course only up to the
revision you removed the svn:mime-type.
