i post an new mail as answer to mail below.

we already want to correct the log-messages, but we did not find an way to
get all the log messages with failures and then to correct them.
is there a known way - a tip to help us?

log messages must be in utf8 encoding. That's a requirement of the svn
library. If they're not, then anything can happen. For example if you
access the repository with http(s), then those messages have to be sent
in an xml response, and non-utf8 strings result in invalid xml.

When you commit with TSVN, TSVN ensures the encoding. But it might be
that other svn clients have a bug and don't properly encode the log
messages. In that case you have to fix the repository on the server
directly using the command line tools (svnadmin).
