svnrdump doesn't handle postfix text deltas. It doesn't handle the
sequence open_file, open_file, ... close_file, close_file. I don't
know whether it's the cause of this particular problem but the fact that
we are seeing an ordering bug is not surprising. I don't think we have
made any explicit changes to server ordering so the bug is probably not
new in 1.7.3 or even 1.7. It's just the usual things that affect server
ordering, the exact build, setup, machine load, etc.
