A couple of people responded like the above... I need to set the
locale. So, I guess my follow up questions would be...

1) How do I set the locale? man locale doesn't yield anything terribly
useful.

2) It's not obvious why this is even necessary. I thought subversion
was supposed to be unicode savvy? Assuming it stored the filename in
some Unicode encoding in the database (UTF-8, UTF-16, etc...) and my OS
fully supports Unicode (Mac OS X uses Unicode everywhere and the HFS+
filesystem stores filenames in Unicode), why is there a problem? Can
someone enlighten me?

Thanks,
Dave
