"Can't recode string" trouble while commiting into folders containing umlauts

Hi,

we have our SuSE 9.3 server running svn 1.1.3.

Our tortoise clients (1.2.2 build 4295, svn 1.2.3) on Windows are able to
access the repo via svn+ssh on that server.

The trouble started when we created folders containing umlauts. In some of
these folders it was possible to create files, in other the error message
"Can't recode string" appeared. This is certainly due to the utf8 encoding
on the server.

The same message appears if you try to get a log of one of these folders,
or inside of them. Getting log info from further above works with problems
though.

This is somewhat strange. How come that files and folders will be properly
translated and others won't?! Any idea?

Perhaps it's a version issue between the server and the client? Is the gap
between them too large?

Marko
