The problem is: We just know it isn't utf-8. But that doesn't tell us how to
fix it.

But which encoding does it have, if it isn't utf-8 as expected?

Without telling Subversion could choose from hundreds of different encodings
(iso-8859-1?, etc., etc.), which might just contain the one you would like.
(Or maybe your filesystem used format 101).

Subversion defines that it must be utf-8, so it can't answer this question
for you.
