special character in filename

Hi,

I recently added some file to my subversion repository that contained special characters,
e.g.: "cryptobox-img/de?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=mount_de.png"

I was able to commit these files without a problem.

I was also able to download these files into another local copy by "svn update".

But it was not possible to run "svn update" in any of these local copies again, because of
some parsing error in the directory containing these files.

When I tried to remove the files from the repository ("svn rm ...") and to commit
this change, it failed.
Commit seemed to delete the first file successfully, but failed to delete the next one
(all files start with "de?..."). The log file of the apache webserver showed the deletion
of a file called "de" instead of "de?...." for the first file.

I had to dump the repository (except for the last revision) and load it again into a fresh
repository. I found no other way to get rid of these special files.

It should not be possible to add files with unusable names to the repository, right?

regards,
and thanks a lot for this great piece of software,
Lars
