Pull: abort: data/MyFile.i@rev: no match found! (International characters)

I've manually placed a BIG repository .hg directory in HgLab_Home\repositories\mainline\myrepo. When I pull from that repo with TortoiseHG I get the following error:

abort: data/ControllerSW/Documentation/Release Items/RI_24 Controller Accessories/RI24 kravgenomgång R1.doc.i@594c24e5f560: no match found!

The file _r_i24 kravgenomg~e5ng _r1.doc.i exists in the repo on the server, but it is not transferred during pull:(

I don't get that error when I pull the same repo from another server (hgweb in linux)

Seems to be a problem with international characters åäö, but I'm not sure...

    What is the command you're using to pull?

    Did it in the TortoiseHG application. It's complaining during update. Now testing with --verbose and --debug from commandline.

    Ok, a few more questions.

    What was the OS where the repository was originally hosted?

    What is your "native" code page/culture name?

    What Encoding do you have configured under Administration - General and does changing it to your native one (if it's not already set this way) solve the problem?

    1. Originally the repo comes from Linux 2.6.35-32 (hg version 2.2.1).
    2. I've then cloned it with my Windows 7 client TortoiseHg version 2.9.2 with Mercurial-2.7.2, Python-2.7.3, PyQt-4.10.2, Qt-4.8.4.
    3. Then I've copied the local repo to hglab on WIndows Server 2008

    Originally the old mercurial server ran hgweb.cgi with HGENCODING = UTF-8.
    The current hgweb.wsgi doesn't say anything about ecoding!? :(
    Hglab says "65001 - Unicode(UTF-8)"

    I'll try to copy the original repo from my linux server onto hglabs tomorrow.

    It didn't get better by copying directly from the original linux mercurial server to hglab. The file is still missing after pull.
    There seems to be a problem in hglab.

    Could you please create a test repository with couple files in it: one named hello.txt and other named RI24 kravgenomgång R1.doc (or what is the exact name of the file that causes trouble) with serveral KB of text in it (random garbage will do) and attach it here.

    Thanks a lot! I was able to reproduce the issue. As a workaround, try to set Encoding in HgLab to "1252 - Western European". Meanwhile, I'll be investigating this issue further.

    The clone works with the workaround. Great! Will verify that the files are not corrupted.

    Are the files OK?

    After a bit of investigating I found out that your repository is not actually encoded as UTF-8, but as CP 1251.

    Is leaving the Encoding setting set to "1252 - Western European" a valid solution for you?

    Yes they seems to be fine.
    Wierd though, I as create the repo om the linux server (hg init).
    Then I populate it with files from windows via TortoiseHG (hg push)
