I always dump/reload to:
1) See that dump/reload works
2) Let subversion have an opportunity to optimize the repository

I know that I didn't need to dump/reload for 1.3.x, but i do this as a routine.
I was lucky I did this, otherwise a restore from the backup would have shown this error = really bad situation.
