Mac OS X: problems adding files with umlauts

I'm using Mac OS X 10.4.7 with Subversion 1.3.1 (r19032) and have
problems adding files with umlauts in the name.

- I've created a file "Überbau.txt" in the working copy
- first problem: when listing the directory content on the console, the
   file name appears as "U??berbau.txt"
- when I invoke 'svn status' in this directory, I get following error
     ~/test tom$ svn status
     subversion/libsvn_subr/utf.c:466: (apr_err=22)
     svn: Can't convert string from native encoding to 'UTF-8':
     subversion/libsvn_subr/utf.c:464: (apr_err=22)
     svn: U?\204?\136berbau.txt
   Why that? Can't Subversion read every file name?
- ok, after setting LC_ALL, it works (even with the right umlaut!):
     ~/test tom$ export LC_ALL=en_US
     ~/test tom$ svn status
     ? Überbau.txt
- now I add the file
     ~/test tom$ svn add \303berbau.txt
     A Überbau.txt
- but when I now invoke 'svn status' again, it shows the same file name
   as missing and unversioned:
     ~/test tom$ svn status
     ? Überbau.txt
     ! Überbau.txt
   Shouldn't it occur as added? Is this a bug or a user-error?
