Well, SVN tries to recode to your current locale. Guessing that the locale was
correct on commit, and guessing your location in germany, and guessing you're
on *NIX, you probably should set your locale to 'german' (or de_DE). See
'locale -a' for which locales you have installed.

If those guesses are wrong, please post again with more info.

Hope this helps,
