problems with non-ascii filenames: "Can't convert string from 'UTF-8' to native encoding"

I have a file in my working copy named:

TMS Frame Assem... inst Final.eps

That non-ascii char (which I hope neither the list nor your mail client
messes up) is an elipsis (U+2026).

When I added the file to the repo, I get the message:

svnlook: Can't convert string from 'UTF-8' to native encoding:
svnlook: /tmp/svnlook.1/docs/Dev/Hybex Figs/TMS Frame Assem?\226?\128?
\166 inst Final.eps

I am using svn 1.2.3 both locally and on the server, on Mac OS 10.4.2.

I will rename the file, but I thought I'd point this out, as it seems to
be a bug with svn's non-ascii filename handling.
