bad characters=svnsync failure / svndumptool question

I'm having difficulties with characters that are sneaking into the repository (file names and directory names) that are causing svnsync to fail because it can't copy the file / directory. In one case, it seems obvious enough, but in another, I can't tell what is in the repo that is causing the failure.

I have found svndumptool, as I saw the word "sanitize", but the definition it provides in the readme leaves me scratching my head:
"Replaces data and/or metadata of a dumpfile with md5 hashes" .... what does that mean? Is this a different kind of 'sanitize' than what I had in mind? If so, is there another way to clean the data so that it can be synced properly? Finally, is there a way to guard against svnsync failing in the future if such characters find their way into the repo at a later date?
