Hi,

I had the same problems here. But with an existing (older) project.
I found two ways around that. The problems seems to be, when some files are in
an older format (non utf8) and some are in utf8. I think svn will analyse the
first file and then find a different and don't like it (but I am not shure
about that).

Solution one:
Import one file at a time

Solution two:
make an archiv (I did an tar) and extract the data in a different place. then
it worked.

I hope this helps you.
