Symlinks with russian letters don't work

Hello, it seems like symlinks with Russian letters can't be committed at the
moment. I'm using svn, version 1.1.1 (r11581), from the Debian package..

Here's a sequence of commands which lead to an error.

$ svnadmin create /tmp/repo
$ mkdir test
$ cd test
$ touch a
$ svn import . file:///tmp/repo -m "Import"
Adding a

Committed revision 1.
ghost@zigzag:/tmp/x/test$ cd ..
ghost@zigzag:/tmp/x$ rm -rf test
ghost_at_zigzag:/tmp/x$ svn co file:///tmp/repo test
A test/a
Checked out revision 1.
$ cd test
$ ln -s a линк
$ svn add линк
A линк
ghost@zigzag:/tmp/x/test$ svn ci -m "Added link"
Adding линк
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't read contents of link: No such file or directory

The "линк" is a russian word. It's typed in the local encoding (KOI8-R) and
the LC_CTYPE environment variable is LC_CTYPE=ru_RU.KOI8-R, which is correct.

Any ideas what's going on?

Looking at the code, I suspect that there's missing call to the
'svn_path_cstring_from_utf8' function in the svn_io_read_link, but I'm not
sure about it.
