FYI From memory, there is a config setting you can put in your
~/.subversion/config file that also sets the encoding used in change
logs. Normally, this would (I think( default to what the setting is on
the local system i.e. LANG= and LC_* etc. However, if this is set to
something like iso8859-1 and you set/force emacs to use UTF-8, you may
get unwanted/unnecessary conversions that could lead to mixed encoding
in the file (especially if you sometimes use other tools with svn).
