I cannot say anything substantial in this direction but only remark that subversion on Mac got this wrong at some point leaving me with files that looked like having the same name (with umlaut characters) but where the filenames were encoded differently and thus were different files to the file system. On subsequent invocations subversion would get completely confused claiming that it would now refuse to overwrite files that are not under revision control.
