RE: Unable to restore a dump having Chinese characters

Got it!
It is a registered Subversion bug: http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2641
Path ordering in the dump is sometimes wrong with non-ASCII file names.
It seems to be fixed in 1.5, and maybe in a 1.4.*

Sorry for the spam...

> Because of a hardware failure, we had to restore our nightly subversion dump.

> The strange characters at the end are supposed to be Japanese chars that the term cannot display.

> We finally managed to restore the dump by using svndumpfilter to exclude this path and several others.
> All of the paths which were causing problems had Chinese or Japanese characters.
> But most paths with such characters worked correctly: only a few were crashing the restore.

> svnadmin create chineserep
