Yes, svnserve version 1.1.4 on a Debian 3.1 GNU/Linux system.

Yes, the locales are different, on the server system I have
    LANG=POSIX
    LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
    LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
    LC_TIME="POSIX"
    ...
while the client is a german language Windows 2000 system with none of
the LANG* or LC* environment variables set.
