hmmm... we also do have a mixed-locale environment, but our SVN-Server
(running via Apache mod_dav_svn) using only BDB repositories is definitely
running in C-locale, but still working fine.
From your postings, I conclude you are running svnserve, is this correct? Are
you running BDB or FSFS repositories? If you are using FSFS, could you check
this with BDB? I'm very curious which of these combinations is triggering
this unexpected feature...
