      Description

      After having installed svn vs. 1.4 on a Windows 98 machine under cygwin, the
      only reaction of starting svn is the message "bash: /usr/bin/svn: Function not
      implemented". A Google search on this problem brought up a the 'I'm getting
      "Function not implemented" errors on RedHat 9, and nothing works. How do I fix
      this?' section in the FAQs, but I do not get the Berkeley DB errors mentioned
      there. This problem reminds of an earlier problem (can't recode string), when I
      found out that svn (this time vs. 1.2) did not work with characters above 128 as
      it seems to require Unicode support for these characters. The problem was easy
      to fix (don't use umlauts in filenames and comments) but the solution was hard
      to find as there was no message that explains what is going wrong. See below a
      short log illustrating the issue:
