Actually, with LANG=C I guess this is doomed to failure. SVN will try
to translate the string into the charset specified by your locale, but
will fail, since there is no way to represent é in ASCII.

It should work correctly for say an ISO-8859-1 locale too, did you try
that? The lack of a decent error message is a bug but probably a tricky
one to fix, you could file an issue on it though.
