Cyrrilic letters in log messages are obfuscated by command line tools

Hello all,
I have problems with cyrillic letters in commit logs.
I'm using Subversion 1.1.4. The server runs under Windows 2003 as
standalone server and clients are TortoiseSVN.

svnlook (and svn) returns string containing decimal code of every byte in
the message encoded in utf-8 instead of the actual bytes of the message.

The attached files contain the actual message and its representation from
the command line tools.
The actual message is shown in tortoise.jpg - notice the revision 417 and
that its log message starts with
small cyrillic letter P.
The output from the svnlook is shown in cmdline.jpg - it starts with the
codes \?208\?191 which is exactly the utf-8 encoded small cyrillic letter
p.
Unfortunatelly this breaks our post-commit hook which allows integration
with Trac.
I've set APR_ICONV_PATH to the proper location (in my case:
APR_ICONV_PATH=c:\progra~1\svn\iconv) but it didn't help.
Please help me to solve this issue.
Best regards,
Todor Totev
