Works fine on a Mac. So, get a Mac to serve your repositories.

I used "svnadmin create foo" and then in the Finder I renamed "foo"
to " " (since I don't know how to type non-ASCII characters in
the Terminal). Viewed in Firefox, I see:

Collection of Repositories

     * /

Clicking this gives me:

http://www.example.com/svn/%c3%a6%20%c3%b8%20a%cc%8a/

And I get:

Revision 0: /

Powered by Subversion version 1.4.6 (r28521).

No problem.
