"Prop-content-length", I assume.

That does sound like a bug somewhere.
I assume you mean to imply that there was no "Text-content-length" field.
Have you seen that inconsistency in any other revision or in a dump from any other repository? (I can't spot such a problem in a quick look through dumps of my repositories.)
Can you reproduce it by creating a similar repository from scratch and dumping it?
What version(s) of "svnadmin" did you use to create and to dump that repository?
What did you to to create revision 1 of that repository? (Exact transcript if possible, please.)
Could you show us the dump of revisions 0 and 1 if it's not too long (or at least the relevant parts if it is very long)?
