Re: "Safe data was followed by non-ASCII byte ..." and other UTF-8 trouble

Hi again,

two more notes for completeness:

I think that this statement is not quite right, as I just observed that
as with a), the problem character did not origin from a file(name), but
from svn output. E.g. the "svn diff" command tried to print "Property
changes on: ...", which in German contains the "ä" Umlaut:
"Eigenschaftsänderung auf: ...", and so the error message that I get in
fact reads: "svn: Auf sichere Daten 'Eigenschafts' folgte ein
nicht-ASCII Byte 195, das nicht von/nach UTF-8 konvertiert werden konnte"

Setting LANG=en_US "fixes" the problem, as there are no umlauts in
English. So I currently use that setting as a work-around, but would
still be interested in learning of there is a more generic solution.
