Non UTF-8 filename problem

I've got a problem with a filename, which contains an UTF-8 incompatible
character. When I checkout the repository via https (mod_dav_svn, Debian
package libapache2-svn version 1.1.4-2, Apache 2.0.54-5, logfile says
"SVN/1.2.3 (r15833) neon/0.24.7") or when I do an update for the
half-checkedout repository, I get the following error message:

svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/conas/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: The REPORT request returned invalid XML in the response: XML parse error at line 10: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
Bytes: 0xFC 0x62 0x65 0x72
. (/svn/conas/!svn/vcc/default)

The file name is 'Fleetnet-Internet_on_the Road_Projektübersicht.pdf'
and the 'ü' character in 'Projektübersicht' is hex 0xFC.

When I do a checkout via a file URL, the error message says:

A PDFs/Fleetnet-Internet_on_the Road_Projektübersicht.pdf
svn: Malformed XML: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 3

Only when checking out with a file url, the file .svn/log is written. It
holds the filename several times with the wrong UTF-8 character.
Therefore svn commands which use this file (e.g. cleanup) also complain
about wrong XML.

Fortunately the file can be accessed with a normale web browser via

Some search fo this problem revealed some bugs and discussions, but all
issues are resolved.

What is wrong? Why could that file be added to the repository (this was
done on 6th December 2005)? How can I rename the file within the
repository without using XML?
