I had such problems in two cases:

1) if my WC was checked out in one locale and then attempted to update in
another (remedy -- set locale to the same where the WC was checked out for
the fors time, o r check out a fresh WC)

2) when some libraries Subversion uses were compiled with unicode support, and
some without (but I do not remember which). Recompilation of all libs and
subversion itself healed the problem instantly in Gentoo. For SuSE,
recompilation is surely much more hassle, but you may want to check what are
the compilations flags of their libraries.

Epps. So you do have UTF-8 chars in your filenames, dont you? Maybe somewhere
in the path? This could be a problem
