Swedish characters in folders on Mac OS X causes errors

When adding a folder containing swedish characters, ňń÷, in svn an
error occurs. Adding a file containing swedish characters, works fine.

The "svn st" command both reports for the folder:

"?" == there is a folder that is not under version control
"!" == there is a folder that is under version control that does not

However, checking out the repo to a Windows box works fine. I haven't
tried Ubuntu (yet).

Mac OS X Leopard (however, the error occurred even in Tiger)
Subversion installed via MacPorts:
svn, version 1.4.5 (r25188)

Ubuntu 7.01 with Apache2 mod_dav_svn and Kerberos authentication
against a Windows domain.
The server is protected via a reverse ISA Proxy.

Does anyone know how to work around this (except for the obvious
"don't use international chars in a folder").
