command line client has problems with paths with hebrew characters

Hi,

Today, I tried to use the SVN command line client from within TexStudio.
TexStudio invoked svn.exe with the following parameters:

svn.exe up --non-interactive c:\path_with_hebrew_letters\somefile.txt

The result was:

Skipped 'c:\path_with_hebrew_letters\somefile.txt'
Summary of conflicts:
  Skipped paths: 1

As you can imagine, that's not very satisfying.
I then investigated. I opened a command prompt (cmd.exe, which is
unicode aware), and then tried the same command as TexStudio executed.
The result was the same (skipped path ...). As a workaround, I can "cd"
into the directory, and then use the command "svn up somefile.txt".
Another workaround is to renaming the folder with the hebrew characters.

My conclusion is that the svn command line client that ships with
tortoise SVN does not properly (if at all) support windows'
unicode-based path names.

I should mention that I was using Tortoise SVN 1.8.7.

Regards,
  Sven
