Yes, but that's another problem, for which I think that the only
solution would be that Subversion use filenames only with ASCII
characters (e.g. with transliteration). This has drawbacks, though.

Note also that Linux allows NFD, which means that if such a file
is created, trying to reuse the filename with a copy-paste fails!
Anyway this is not a Subversion-related problem (except if
Subversion doesn't convert NFD to NFC for files committed from
Mac OS X).
