  It is ISO 8859-1. I have to exchange files with poeple not using UTF-8 so I
cant switch to UTF-8 yet ...

  I tried, but I still have the same problem (cant recode string).

  Both files are attached. I do have a directory with accentuated character in
name (./justificatifs/tlphone) but I did alreay add some files without
problem. "svn status" run from justificatifs/tlphone gives :

$ svn status
A sunrise/24.07.2003.png
A sunrise/21.10.2003.png
A sunrise/21.02.2004.png
D sunrise/22.12.2003.png

  A commit from that directory fails (can't recode string).

  If that is the case, is there a way to check it ? Or even to correct it ?

  If I can do anything to help you find it ... I'm ready to try !

  Thanks a lot for your help ! It is still not working, but at least I have
the feeling that it might in some time ... ;-)
