This is an issue on the server side. You have to make sure that your
server has apr_iconv installed and that the svn modules can find it.
TSVN (and other windows clients) all must pass all data and string utf-8
encoded to the svn library, and that's not a problem anymore on Windows
ever since apr_iconv isn't used anymore on Windows.
