Did you try moving them in the repository browser?

Fail how? Fail when? Which command does not work with those?
(btw: I have *lots* of files with those umlauts, and never had a problem).

The '@' is used in the command line client to mark peg revisions. It is
not used in TSVN at all.

Your bug report has many words and we all get that you're upset. But
basically all you're saying there is "it doesn't work". You don't say
what operations you tried, you don't say which dialogs you used, you
don't even say exactly what you were trying to do (yes, 'moving files'
-in your working copy, in the repo browser, on the server, ...).

Please provide detailed infos.
