  OK, I tried to set LC_CTYPE and LANG to fr_CH.UTF-8. At least it chages the
error, but it still doesnt work :-( Now I get :

$ svn update
svn: Valid UTF-8 data
(hex: 74)
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: e9 6c e9 70)

  I guess that's because my filesystem isnt actually UTF-8 (was created before
changing the locales). I would probabl require to rename a few files ... But
I dont know which one. I guess it is the filename that is a problem and not
file content (I read subversion treats all files as binary) but I am not
really sure about this ...

  Also, for a number of reason, I would like to keep my fr_CH locale and not
change it to UTF-8. Is there a way to keep it but still use subversion ?

        Thanks for all your help !
