      Description

      Subversion seem to have some serious problems in the area of Unicode handling of file names.
      
      I tried to delete a file from the repository using:
      
      > svn rm -m"Subversion is still not able to use unicode correctly so we need another round of 
      fixing." https://gnuada.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gnuada/pmwiki/htdocs/wiki.d/Profiles.Bj%C3%

      Committed revision 991.
      
      I update to delete the file from the local copy:
      
      >svn update 
      Updating '.':
      D    htdocs/wiki.d/Profiles.BjörnPersson
      Aktualisiert zu Revision 991.
      
      Up until here it looks good. But then:
      
      >svn status
      !       htdocs/wiki.d/Profiles.BjörnPersson
      
      Still there? And indeed:
      
      >svn update
      Updating '.':
      Wieder hergestellt »htdocs/wiki.d/Profiles.BjörnPersson«
      Revision 991.
      
      Back again. But wait that is not all:
      
      >svn status
      ?       htdocs/wiki.d/Profiles.BjörnPersson
      !       htdocs/wiki.d/Profiles.BjörnPersson
      
      Now there are two offenders! You need to delete the other one as well to get it sorted:
      
      >svn rm -m"Subversion is still not able to use unicode correctly so we need another round of 
      fixing." https://gnuada.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gnuada/pmwiki/htdocs/wiki.d/

      Yes there are two ways to write an ö in unicode «\0xC3\0yB6» and «\0x6f\0xcc\0x88» That is 
      just as much fun then changing the capitalization on Windows.
