It _is_ definitely responsible, cause this problem makes me sick for a long
time I have to use an SVN client... The problem is that the $Date$ keyword
gets expanded to utf8 text using my regional settings. At home, when I have
the Vista Eng, all is Ok, but at work, where I have to use the russian
version of XP (corporate standard), I get russian utf8 day names as almost
unreadable double byte sequences. Also I can't remove this tag from sources.

Yes, it happens to the working copy only, but by a coincidence that's the
only copy I work with :) I've got no another sources...

So you wanna say, that any SVN client passes its local code page to a
server, and then a server formats that $Date$ accordingly to my regional
settings? I doubt that.
