Possibly this is not a corruption, but actually a localization or internationalization issue. I would look to see that the environment variables LC_CTYPE and LANG are set properly. In my company, we set them to en_US.UTF-8
perhaps, you'd want to set them to a different character set?

Subject: Recovering corrupted repository

Hi all,

i have a problem with a corrupted SVN-repository. Assume the following
layout for our repository

/svnrep
        /dir1
        /dir2
        /dir3_with_problems_according_to_umlauts
        /dir4
        /dir5

When i issue a cvs checkout command like:

cvs checkout file///c:/svnrep

i get the following error message while svn tries to checkout /dir3*

svn: Can't check path 'svnrep\G?\252tefunktionen f?\252r': Invalid argument
(as you can see there are umlauts in the path name)
