Does this mean that svn no longer has the ability to do anything with
non-ASCII characters? For most people that should not be a hitch, but
for the people it matters to, this could be a problem.

Funnily enough, when I compiled 1.1.1 myself, the same error occurs
which shouldn't have happened since the 1.1.1 installer binaries don't
give that error...

Regardless, if you say this isn't a problem, I now have a set of 1.1.2
binaries (installer and zip) that has locale support.
