The character encoding of svn/svnlook output

I do most of my work in Tortoise, using non-ASCII characters in log
messages all the time, and even the occasional non-ASCII filename.
Works like a charm.

Until I try to inspect the same data from the command-line using svn
or svnlook (1.2.1 r15230 on W2K). Then I see stuff like this:

C:\work\fdcarkiver>svn log --limit 1
r23 | ajmflo04 | 2005-08-08 12:09:05 +0200 (ma, 08 aug 2005) | 1 line


"?\195?\165" is what "" (unicode code point U+00E5) becomes. I was
expecting output to be in either the console default encoding (which
in my case can handle "" just fine), or in utf-8 encoding, or in some
encoding that I could explicitly specify. But what on earth is this?
