Ok, I tried to reproduce your issue here on my Mac OS X Tiger system
with Subversion 1.6.4 and Apache 2.2.11. I don't know how to enter
UTF-8 characters into the Terminal, so I typed "svnadmin create foo"
and then renamed it to "HY-平台" in the Mac OS X Finder. I have
SVNListParentPath turned on in my Apache configuration, so I then
looked at the repository list in a web browser to discover what the
URL encoding of those UTF-8 characters would turn out to be, which on
my HFS+ disk was HY-%e5%b9%b3%e5%8f%b0. I tried to check out a
working copy from the URL, but it failed:

$ svn co http://myserver/HY-%e5%b9%b3%e5%8f%b0 testing
svn: Unusable URI: it does not refer to this repository

So I can't even get as far as you can with this.

It seems there are some problems with repository names that contain
non-ASCII characters. Who knows how long it will take to identify and
fix those issues, so my recommendation to you for now is to use only
ASCII characters in your repository names, inconvenient though I
realize that could be for non-English languages.

If you'd like someone to look into this, you should try it again and
tell us the error message you get.

Presumably "svn commit", right? Does every commit fail or only
certain files? Does it matter what the names of the files are that
you're committing -- have you tried both ASCII and non-ASCII
characters in the filenames?

Ok, the server computer is running Windows XP? What operating system
is the client computer running? Also Windows XP? Or are they the same

What version of Apache 2.2?
