It is not exactly mine, I downloaded it already compiled, and thus I
probably share it with many other users ;)

I've got this variable set (automatically by the installation program)
to : APR_ICONV_PATH=C:\Program Files\Subversion\iconv
This is a folder that exists on my computer, and it contains many .so
files that correspond to different encodings. Is it possible that the
space in this variable could be a problem ?

I'm eager to see it working, and I will not submit any bug before all
other ways have been explored. Maybe at the end, if this is a
configuration problem, I might submit a bug to the installation software

If there is anything I can do to help people understand my problem,
please tell me. For instance, is there a way to know which .so file the
client is trying to open, and what should it see in it ? A kind of
verbose mode.
