Without seeing the whole dumpfile, one can't say for sure if the
change was correct. I believe the amount of shift you need to apply
to the copyfrom-rev is probably equivalent to the number of prior
revisions dropped by the filtering process.

We don't call these "svndumpfilter oddities", we call 'em bugs. It's
not a new bug by any stretch -- it's bitten me many times in the past,
and I think it's issue #1911.
