It gets part-way through and quits with:

svn: Can't recode string

A little googling suggests this is a file-naming issue/region/locale issue, but I'm not using non-ASCII characters (that I know of).

    I'm having the same problem (subversion 1.1RC4 from metissian.com) on OS X 10.3.5.
    The error occurs when trying to import files with japanese glyphs in their filenames. One has to tweak the locale environment variable, but where do I do this in OS X ? Any hints appreciated, thanks.

      I added this to my .bash_profile in Mac OS X 10.3.9:

      export LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
      export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
