It's a Mac, so please see this issue:
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2464
and make sure to read the notes in this file:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/notes/unicode-composition-for-filenames

Short summary:
Do not use anything but ASCII in your filenames if you need things
to work between Macs and other systems. The problem is that the Mac
changes the filename in a subtle way.
