umlaute in filename

Hi,
 
I'm a subversion client on linux.
Recently I encounter errors like this:
 
svn update
svn: Error converting entry in directory 'Fein/AP11_Faktura_Sonderaufgaben' to UTF-8
svn: Valid UTF-8 data
(hex: 20 53 50 52 49 4e 54 20 20 53 53 54 20 31 31 31 20 2d 20 20 47 72 6f)
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: df 6b 75 6e)
 
Actually the error message is in German because my locale is usually set to de_DE.UTF-8.
For this English mailing list I set it to en_US.utf8.
 
The problem is that the other German windows users checked in files with German umlaute in filenames.
 
How can I solve this problem? I have to mention that all contents od our sources are encoded in utf-8. This is
the reason why I set LANG to de_DE.UTF-8.
 
Unfortunately I do not know in which encoding filenames under windows are written and how to change it.
 
Thomas
