The question here is not whether "svnadmin dump" is DTRT -- it is -- but
whether it is a bug that svndumpfilter will allow you to exlude paths
with copy sources from the dump, or, if not, whether it should tweak the
filtered dump file so that it doesn't refer to those copy sources (which
would essentially make such a dump useless for backups since it changes
history, but I don't think that's a problem in his scenario).
