Further I was told that this could be related to a missing installation of apr-iconv modules or missing setting of APR_ICONV_PATH. Is this relevant when I don't run subversion as an Apache moudle?

If it's a server side problem it's unlikely to actually be a missing
apr-iconv or APR_ICONV_PATH, since usually you don't use apr-iconv on
Unix systems. I suspect it would be either a problem with your
version of apr-util not linking against the system's libiconv, or your
system not having the correct locales installed.

On the other hand, I'm not sure if they're right that it's a server
problem. It is quite likely to be a client side problem, and in that
case the lack of the apr-iconv modules or APR_ICONV_PATH on the
windows system could quite easily cause the problem.

That's probably because that one directory contains something with a
filename/directory name that contains characters that require
translation via iconv, but the others do not.
