Sounds like a locale problem. Subversion wants to convert internal
UTF8 strings to your local encoding (is it Latin-1?), but for some
reason it can't, so it prints these "?\NNN" codes instead, where NNN
is the decimal representation of a UTF8 octet value.

I'm not an expert in the LC_* environment variables, but are they all
set correctly? Or maybe there's some problem with the iconv library
SVN was compiled with? (Does SVN even use iconv on Windows XP? I'm
not sure.)

I hope this leads in the direction of an answer, anyway...

Good luck,
