You are completely right, Ulrich. Proceeding carefully (and not at
late night) helped
me see that the second problem (checking out an 'accented' file in Linux) was a
no-problem. My apologies.

The first problem, though (being unable to use an 'accented' filename
in a  hook script
called from an Apache module), is still a problem. Stefan has already
pointed me in
the right direction, although I'm afraid I don't have the resources to
implement a
workaround he suggested any time soon.

I have asked for help in CollabNet forums regarding the workaround

Thanks to everyone.
