Oh, reading this again makes me think you've set TM to save in Latin 1, 
and that was the problem (that svn is actually setup correctly to use 
UTF-8 and thus choked on the latin 1 commit message)...

I can't say it enough: UTF-8 is the king of encodings, and everybody 
should use it! :)

If you go to TextMate Preferences / Advanced you can disable “Only 
apply to new files” under File Encoding (which should be in the 
recommended setting ;) ), then TextMate will also save files which 
weren't loaded as UTF-8 (or 7 bit ASCII) as UTF-8.

I have this disabled myself.
