Unicode file names on Windows

as it happens I currently have a repository with a few files having
Unicode file names. The subversion server seems to handle it without
problems, storing the filenames apparently as UTF-8, the client is
another thing, though. It not only has Unicode output issues (bug 1773
in a slightly different manifestation) but it also seems to convert file
name parameters into some oddball 8-bit encoding I haven't yet figured out.

What all this comes down to is the following fun:

W:\>svn ci -m "minor test change" "Flag of Červený Újezd.svg"
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: 'W:\Flag of Cervenì éjezd.svg' is not under version control

W:\>svn st
M Flag of Cervenì éjezd.svg

(The correct file name is in the first command line at the end)

Any ideas how to work around that (I tried using svn add *, but even
_that_ misses some files, for whichever reason; most are added that way,
though)? I could use TortoiseSVN for that but for things I mostly do in
Far it's a bit cumbersome to open Explorer just to add a file or so. And
Unicode support in the Windows console is by now probably well over a
decade old, so I hope it's not too much to ask.


P.S.: Followups to me would be nice in case of answers, so I don't have
to poll the online archives.
