"recode string" issue in commit messages

Hello subversion users,

I have a issue about non ascii characters in commit messages.
It is annoying.

         sh> uname -a
         Linux sablons 2.4.20-3-686 #1 Sat Jun 7 22:34:55 EST 2003 i686 GNU/Linux

         sh> svn --version
         svn, version 1.1.3 (r12730)

         # somewhere...
         sh> cat comments
         En français il y a des lettres accentuées.

         sh> svn commit -F comments
         svn: Commit failed (details follow):
         svn: Can't recode string

I do not think I'm the first to try to put accentuated characters in a
comment, however I have neither found this reported nor it seems to appear
in the FAQ. The bug-reporting form say one should send an email here
instead of reporting a bug. So here I am.

Is it a bug? a feature? Am I missing something?
