Re: Non ASCII characters in commit message?

Yeah, that was it! I was using "C" as locale (because of some
incompatibilities with legacy UNIX apps when using other locales)

I switched to "fr_FR.ISO-8859-1" and it works. Thanks a lot.

PS: Maybe that could be added to the Subversion book, what do you think?
