Problems with FreeBSD and native characters

I have problem when using svn on freebsd. When using filenames containg
native characters (like ) svn is complaining. It happens both when
trying to svn add these files and when trying to svn co a repository
containing these files. The situation is this: I have the svn server at
home, on my Linux system. I'm also using svn at school (only client here).
We have both freebsd 4.8 and solaris 9 at school, and there's only
problems on freebsd. There is also no problems with the client at home.
works without problems in almost every other application at the
freebsd system, it's just svn that is not really working. Output from

> svn co http://loa.csbnet.se/svn/test_repos
A test_repos/another_file
svn: Safe data:
... was followed by non-ascii byte 195.

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

That computer is almost always on, so maybe you could try to svn co if you
have freebsd.

To me, this looks like a bug, because svn shouldn't really care if I'm
using some strange charachter bytes only used in some special variant of a
hebrew codepage or whatever, or if I'm checking out from someone using it.
