I'd say there are two bugs:

* One in cvs2svn, which currently produces redundantly complex (but not
incorrect) dump files.

* One in the dumper-loader, which responds to redundant complexity by
producing garbage.

The dumper-loader one is what this email thread is about, because the
cvs2svn one is already in IssueZilla.
The file I provided is a reproduction for the dumper-loader bug.
