encoding problems and documentation

I ran into the problem:
   svn: Valid UTF-8 data
   (hex: 63 61 72 74 65 20 73 69 6d 70 6c 69 66 69)
   followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
   (hex: e9 65)

the culpit is a directory with a bad encoding:
svn ls
 carte simplifi?\233e/

This directory was added by someone else and I cannot remove from the server.
I found a lot of related mails in the archive without finding a solution
(for instance http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=57549)

How can I rename this file, I tried to play with the "--encoding"
option, naming the file with its hexa values:
  svn mv --encoding=/Hexadecimal-1 "63 61 72 74 65 20 73 69 6d 70 6c
69 66 69 e9 65" 63
but I'm not lucky enough, and as I couldn't find any documention about
this option, I guess I will need a lot of luck. (I picked up
"/Hexadecimal-1 from "recode -l")

What could I do ? Having a solution for this in the FAQ once for all
would be great !

Thanks for any hint
