svn needs to convert the internal UTF-8 representation of strings to

For the "original" subversion client, I had such problems when
APR_ICONV_PATH didn't point to the "iconv" subdir (i.g. "C:\Program
Files\Subversion\inconv") of the Subversion installation. The installer
set's this - but sometimes only for the user installing the packet. I
made it a system wide environment setting to avoid such problems.

Another possible reason is a second, installed but not proper configured
subversion client. Had it once, where the Win32 binary and the cygwin
port of subversion conflicted on a system. The installer adds the
Subversion\bin directory at the end of the PATH, so the (unconfigured)
cygwin port was called and had problems finding his localisation libs.

Bernd
