Re: Can't recode string - svn Version 1.1.1 (r11851) - cygwin under Windows 98

Thank you for the information clarifying the picture: Subversion will not
handle umlauts correctly if you run it on a Windows 98 machine. There is
no workaround this problem. Runnig cygwin atop Windows 98 does not help.
On Linux or Windows XP based machines subversion has no problems with
umlauts.

My current state of knowlege in short: You can use subversion on Windows
98 machines, you can use subversion with umlauts, but you cannot use
subversion with umlauts on Windows 98 machines. If you try the latter you
are going to waste a lot of your time (as I did). I'd like to know if
someone is able to prove me that this assessment is wrong.

Regards

Albrecht
