I suppose that is because darcs (like all applications using the
standard Haskell I/O library) is not encoding-aware. When Marco Túlio
etc. types the patch name, darcs reads the UTF-8 encoded 'ú' as two
bytes. When it outputs those two bytes in an environment that
interprets it as latin1, you get  'ú'.
