I found in the manual that this could be related to the locale settings,
which haven't changed since I installed my SuSE, as far as I know.
Anyway, 'locale' returns the following:

chopsuey@chopsuey:~/code/glaretest> locale

Btw, I have tried to create a new repository from scratch with svnadmin
v1.2.3 and the problems persist. For example, after 'svnadmin create', I
try to create a basic repository layout, so I issue:

chopsuey_at_chopsuey:~/code/glare> svn mkdir svn://localhost/glare

I enter the commit message and svn responds:

svn: Can't convert string from native encoding to 'UTF-8':
svn: X?\13?\208?\184
svn: Su mensaje de commit fue dejado en un archivo temporario:
svn: 'svn-commit.2.tmp'

After that, the new directory seems to be there:

chopsuey_at_chopsuey:~/code/glare> svn list svn://localhost

What's going on? I'm getting a little mad about this. I know it has to
be something about character encodings but can't understand what's
wrong. Please lend me a hand.
