last month a user (windows, tortoisesvn) created a
subversion dir with a german U-Umlaut. Now checkout or
update fails, like following posting from october 2003

Subject: Using strange chars in filenames = XML parse error

I think part of the problem is how non-ASCII characters are getting
mapped to URLs. In this case, the german U-Umlaut is mapped to a
single-byte escape (%81), although it should first be UTF-8 encoded and
only hex-escaped afterwards...
(that's the only interoperable way to represent non-ASCII characters
  in WebDAV URLs).

At point of creating the dir, subversion 1.0.X was installed.
Now (after upgrade) we using subversion (and belonging packages)
in following versions.

ii subversion 1.1.1-2 Advanced version control system
ii subversion-too 1.1.1-2 Assorted tools related to Subversion
ii libapache2-svn 1.1.1-2 Apache modules for Subversion
ii libsvn0 1.1.1-2 Shared libraries used by Subversion

The problem with the wrong encoding of not xml chars always happened.
At this time no checkout can be made, only existing working copies
can be used (without the broken directory).

--- local error message
svn: PROPFIND request failed on
svn: The PROPFIND request returned invalid XML in the response: XML
parse error at line 85: Bytes: 0xFC 0x62 0x65 0x72

How we can solve this problem ? Is there a possibility to remove this
"wrong encoded" dir ?

Thanks in advance
