It looks like you're trying to import filename which contains a ']'
character followed by ASCII 127 (backspace). The subversion
repository converts all filenames to UTF-8, and backspace is an
illegal character. As the error says, it cannot convert the string
to UTF-8.

The answer is to rename the file. It's probably inside the last
directory printed by the import command.
