Cannot accept 'svn:sync-lock' property because it is not encoded in UTF-8

Hello,

I've ran into the following problem with svnsync on Windows Vista.
I'm trying to mirror a repository from my flash drive to the local
disk, and keep getting the following message:

svnsync: Cannot accept 'svn:sync-lock' property because it is not
encoded in UTF-8

What's wrong here? I've been doing the same thing many times before,
on Windows and Linux, and never seen anything like this.

Here's what I'm doing:

C:\Data>svnadmin create svn-backup

C:\Data>svnsync init file:///c:/data/svn-backup file:///s:/svn
svnsync: Cannot accept 'svn:sync-lock' property because it is not
encoded in UTF-8

C:\Data>svn pdel --revprop -r 0 svn:sync-lock file:///c:/data/svn-backup
property 'svn:sync-lock' deleted from repository revision 0

C:\Data>svnsync init file:///c:/data/svn-backup file:///s:/svn
svnsync: Cannot accept 'svn:sync-lock' property because it is not
encoded in UTF-8

It seems that the message from svnsync is issued before calling
pre-revprop-change hook in the target repository.
Here's the svn version I'm using:
