Not sure what you mean by "hacking set de_DE.ISO8859-1". Did you
explicitly set both LANG and LC_TYPE? It sounds like you should try
de_DE.UTF-8 as well.

To set these on the command prompt you need to use the syntax "set
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8". You can set these permanently through the Control
Panel (System, Advanced, Environment Variables, System Variables) but
*make sure* they "take" on the Command Prompt by typing "set LANG" and
"set LC_TYPE" without a second parameter to see what their current
values are.

Please be sure to write back what worked for you, so I can check in
vss2svn if the users' environment variables don't seem to match their
Windows locale settings (as defined in the registry). Also let me know
if this lets you convert all your comments as well, without the need for
the --utf8 switch. (No need to copy my personal email address; I read
both lists regularly so just reply there). Thanks!
