That shouldn't happen on Windows ??
The \XXX indicates a char that couldn't be converted from utf8 to the
local charset, but on Windows, svn uses the windows API to do the
conversion (or at least it should). Usually those errors only happen on
Linux systems where iconv isn't installed or configured properly.

So I have no idea why this happens. But it happens inside the svn
library since TSVN doesn't write those files :)
