How nice you found my patch! :-)

No, the error probably comes from cvs2svn.py. Did you use it to create your
repository? If you did, then do you have any file names with non-ascii
characters in their names?

Applying that patch to your cvs2svn.py will fix that problem.

It is not the downloaded file which is the problem. Subversion does not make
a difference between binary and text files (except for diff operations). The
problem is - probably - that the encoding of the file name was not utf8...
which unfortunately might mean that you will have to re-import using
cvs2svn.py again....
