got "Section header expected" error with a UTF-8 authz file contains BOM

I got "Section header expected" when I try to checkout my project from the repository that contains a UTF-8 codec authz file.
The authz file contains the BOM("ef bb bf") and if I got rid of the BOM from my authz file but still kept it as UTF-8, I would checkout my project successfully.
I have the Chinese directory in my project and try to use Chinese username to auth. So I have to keep the authz file as UTF-8 or svn will fail to recognise the Chinese.
Is this a bug?
My svn version: 1.3.2
