Seems unlikely, as the filenames are entirely within the ASCII range.
I've got no idea though why selected lowercase characters should have
been replaced with their hex escape equivalents.

The cygcheck output doesn't look healthy though:

    Cygwin DLL version info:
        DLL version: 1.7.5

cygwin                         1.7.7-1

Also, any chance that TortoiseSVN\bin in the path might interfere? Try
'which svn' and 'svn --version' to make sure you're really getting the
Cygwin version.

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.6.13 (r1002816)
   compiled Oct  4 2010, 09:08:12
