The cvs2svn script has been changing rapidly over the last couple of
weeks. If you have bugs to report, we'd love to hear about them, but
you need to be using the cvs2svn script included in svn release 0.22.1
or later.

svn log -v foo.c

I think you're getting confused over the global revision numbers. I
suspect you need to read the subversion book, and in particular, look
over the first appendix (for former CVS users.) The svn repository is
an array of numbered trees called "revisions". In svnshell.py,
'setrev' selects the entire tree to browse. The the revnum shown next
to each file is the last global revision in which the file changed.
