I remember seeing this one in the log:
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvn/archive-2004-11/0695.shtml

I think it was fixed already (characters appearing as question marks in
the log)

Already helping with the debugging in the other sub-thread :D

About the translation, I'm not really sure that's a good idea :).

First of all, there is no Hebrew translation of Subversion, so I'll have
to invent most of the basic terminology ("Commit", "Revision", etc).

Furthermore, and this is a personal POV, most people I work with don't
use the Hebrew words for most tech stuff since they're rather new
introductions into the language and sound rather silly :)

Other words have several meanings. For exmaple, "merge" in the context
menu will have to be expanded into several words - thus bloating the menu.

I'll try asking around the Israeli community. If people see some benefit
in it, I'll reconsider. :)
