Then again, it could simply be an issue with how you compile the
sources. You may know that the Windows API exists in two flavors, one
using the good old 8bit per character and one using 16bit per character
and it takes some defines/compiler switches to switch between them.

So they will probably ask me which options you use for configure of
subversion, apr, etc. - or are you using VisualStudio? Well, my point is
that I really don't know these details.

I'm really the wrong guy to report the issue to the subversion developers.

No, the GUI tools are fine.
