Problems converting to/from utf-8

Hi,

We are using Subverion 1.05. The server is running on a Solaris machine,
software installed from the packages available from sunfreeware.com.

The clients are running on WinXP or Win2000 using svn command line
or TortoiseSVN.

In our repository we have files with german umlaute (ä, ö etc).

I checked out a working copy from a test repository on the Solaris machine
(without umlaute).
c:\_tst>svn checkout svn://server/tst .
A trunk
A trunk\foo.txt
A trunk\long.txt
A trunk\test.txt
A branch
A tags
Checked out revision 1.

Added the file täst.txt to the working copy.
c:\_tst>dir /b trunk
foo.txt
long.txt
test.txt
täst.txt

When trying to svn add the file, the following error shows up.
c:\_tst>svn add trunk/täst.txt
svn: Safe data:
"trunk/t"
... was followed by non-ascii byte 228.

Non-ascii character detected (see above), and unable to convert to/from
UTF-8

svn list, svn log --verbose and svn status --verbose give the same error.

Windows is set to german. On the server, the user running the repository has

this language settings:

$ locale
LANG=
LC_CTYPE="C"
LC_NUMERIC="C"
LC_TIME="C"
LC_COLLATE="C"
LC_MONETARY="C"
LC_MESSAGES="C"
LC_ALL=

Committing the file with Tortoise works but I need the command line, too.
Any idea, what to do about this?

Many thanks,
Tobias
