I think here's the catch. I've just found that Windows converts the
filenames. When you enter e.g. a filename 'test1.txt' in the explorer
(the 1 in the name entered with Alt-1), then Windows doesn't use the
ASCII code 1 for this but converts it to 0x263a (a wide char).
So I guess your Linux installation just can't handle that code for some
reason. TSVN converts this correctly to 0xe2, 0x98, 0xba (UTF8).

I don't think it's possible for Subversion (or TSVN) to detect that such
a char doesn't work on your Linux machine. Maybe your iconv lib doesn't
have those codes stored in its tables or something. At least it is a
perfectly valid UTF8 sequence.
