Error with swedish characters in filenames

Hi! I'm working both at school and at home, and use subversion to keep
track of my files. The server is located on my home computer. In school we
use FreeBSD 4.8 (with some custom modifications I think), and at home I
use Debian testing/unstable. It works fine until I try to checkout
the repository in school. When I execute this command:
> svn co http://loa.csbnet.se/svn/shared

I get this output:

A shared/kalas_schema.doc
svn: Invalid argument
svn: Safe data:
... was followed by non-ascii byte 195.

Non-ascii character detected (see above), and unable to convert to UTF-8.

The file is named biljettförsäljning.xls, so it's the ä character that
causes the problem.

This is the adress the file has when I copy 'n paste from the repository
when I browse the repository with Mozilla Firebird:

My Linux system at home has no problem with these filenames.

subversion version: 0.32.1
URL to repository (not always up): http://loa.csbnet.se/svn/shared

Anyone has any suggestions of what to do? Or is this a bug?
