It works in the browser, because the browser sends the username in your
current codepage. But Subversion clients send the username and password
in utf8 encoding. Because what browsers do wouldn't work if you had e.g.
a username with Cyrillic chars in it on your german OS.
To fix this, you have to change your apache config file (or the file
where you've set up the users who have access to your repository). Try
saving that file in utf8 encoding.
