I know that this should work on *ix. But I wrote in the first mail
that the clients are on Win2K. There is no LANG variable on
Windows and setting one doesn't change things either.

I can imagine (or hope) that TSVN is "only" a user interface but
uses the same code for the main functionality as svn. So they
would both get the information from the same place on Windows.
If that is the case the TSVN people may not even know where
as it "just works" :) But I can ask there anyway.

Thanks
