This is strange - it superficially looks like a double ISO-8859-1 to
utf8 conversion, but it isn't. ┼ is C5 in 8859-1 (and in Windows Latin
1), and that is represented as c3 85 in utf8, and doing the conversion
twice yields c3 83 c2 85 which looks similar to yours, but isn't the same.

Doing that in reverse C3 90 C2 9F goes back to D0 9F which is the code

Standard SVN answer 'you should have...', in this case '...tested this
aspect before'.

Now I guess your best bet is to rename these files to the proper
thing (or remove them, as they are apparently not needed. :-) Old
history will look broken (but as nobody immediately had errors
with those trees perhaps that doesn't matter either).

svndumping, filtering and reloading may fix the file names for
all revisions, but I have no idea how the client sandboxes
will react to that.
