I ended up completely removing the line 
IB.HtmlCharSet := 'UTF-8'; 
Then I added a "translator" function which replaces Swedish characters
in a string with the HTML escape sequences. I call this function to
wash text before inserting into the HTML mail body.

This solved the mailing problem for the case where new files and
folders are using these characters. But the existing names erroneously
converted (from cvs to svn) I have to manually rename via Subversion
to get right for the future. Hopefully there are only a handful of
such files/folders (I have so far found about a dozen).
