If I check the default CVS server encoding it appears to be Cp1252 on my
windows machine and ISO-8859-1 on my linux machine, might this problem have
been caused due to such a setting, e.g. file has been checked in on Windows
using Cp1252 server encoding and checked out on PowerPC using UTF-8 server

And what is the default Eclipse CVS repository encoding btw, I couldn't
find it on the Using_Eclipse_and_CVS wiki page?
