No Daniel it is not. Subclipse use JavaHL. If anything needs to be
done with the commit message then it is the responsibility of the
JavaHL library to do so. That said, I am sure whatever needs to be
done is done in the API already.

Perhaps the user is using SVNKit with Subclipse and this is a bug in
SVNKit? If so it should be reported to support_at_svnkit.com.
