user usernames with special characters in access file?

after some messing around i was able to configure subversion and auth
users agains an active directory.

after an upgrade to apache 2.2 i was able to allow usernames like
"mmller" to pass the mod_auth_ldap authentication in apache (using the
apache 2.2 AuthLDAPCharsetConfig config).

after this step subversion verifies the username and repository access
and fails everytime (Access denied: 'mm\xfcller' GET svn:/). dont get
confused, the \xfc is an in the used charset, it gets escaped by the
apache logger for improved log file safety.
usernames without special chars work.

is there no way subversion usernames may contain special characters
is there a way to define a charset for the AuthzSVNAccessFile ??

thanks for any hints on this :)
