I get the same problem with the same version of svn.
I tried
$ svn import svn svn://linuxserver/test3 -m "test entry"
and get the following message
svn: Valid UTF-8 data
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: b0 33 06 08)

My server is running on Suse 9.1 using the "svnserv -d -r <path>".
$rpm -q -v subversion
On my work pc running Suse9.2
$rpm -q -v subversion

I tried some file one by one which work fine, then I moved this files in
a newly created directory and tried to import the whole directory. And
get result as above.

It seems that only importing a directory cause this problem.
I tried this also directly on the server, with the same result. Single
file works, directory did not work.
I tried it also using TortoiseSVN on WinXP Home and it worked fine. So I
think server setup is ok and working.
I also tried to use a local repository on my work pc running Suse9.2
$ svn import file:......
Same results.
It seems that there is a problem in the client libs of svn. At least in
the one I use.
I get these from
for the server and the right packet for Suse9.2 of corse.

Any Idears why this happen ?!



PS: I am a subversion newbe. But I read almost the entire "subversion
book" and found no help about this, so I hope to find help here.
