thanks for your reply :)

that kinda makes sense. thing is: how to i supply the username in utf-8?
the only thing i found is the AddDefaultCharset for apache2, which is
already defined in /etc/apache2/conf.d/charset.

since the clients can (by definition?) send requests in any charset, the
server is supposed to convert the request in its own charset. for the
ldap auth this is done with 'AuthLDAPCharsetConfig'.

both the browser (for webaccess) and eclipse seem to use iso-8859-1
usernames.

is there some charset filtering/converting option in apache prior to let
subversion deal with the username?

any hints welcome! :)
