Encoding issues

Hello guys,

I have SVN running under Windows, in two flavors

1) Windows XP - English with Brazilian Portuguese regional settings
2) Windows 2003 - English with English regional settings

It may sounds strange, but it's a common setup for brazilian developers.

In both installs, when I locally run a command, svnlook for example, I got
messages with wrong chars in the console. In the flavor 1), I tried another
setting that windows let's to change the code page for non-UTF-8
applications. With this setting, I got the right message.

The first question is: svnlook or the svn command line tools for windows
isn't utf-8 compatible? Maybe this is a little problem in pt_BR locale?

How svn knows my locale? In the flavor 1), regional settings makes sense. In
the flavor 2) There's anything telling svn that it's pt_BR.

I have two applications that uses svnlook: SVN::Notify (perl) and Draco.Net.
Both is sending mails with wrong chars.

Thanks for any help.
