I have svn repository contains files and 'folders' have both english and non-english(russian) names. There is utf-8 enconding in the settings. Everything well with english named files and 'folders'. But when i trying to get russian named files or 'folder' i see such error in the log:

I caught invoke shellout(cmd) in the subversion_adapter.rb and saw at the cmd variable.
It contained:

 'svn list --xml "svn://uran/╨Ъ╨╛╨╜╨▓╨╡╤А╤В╨░╤Ж╨╕╤П"@HEAD 2>&1'      

Temporary i solved this problem in the abstract_adapter.rb:

def shellout(cmd, &block)
   logger.debug "Shelling out: #{cmd}" if logger && logger.debug?
      # IO.popen( cmd, "r+") do |io|
      IO.popen( Iconv.iconv( 'cp1251','utf-8', cmd ).to_s, "r+") do |io|

But I think it's no good

P.S. I think such problem is not for Russian chars in path only. This occur when size( utf-8 char ) > 1 byte
P.P.S.Sorry for my bad English

I had the same problem with Norwegian characters. The patch in #1993 fixed my problem. It seems like this is a legitimate bug .. ? At least we have a solution that works.
