It seems to me that your dump/load cycle wasn't really successful and
that something went wrong there. Because the date selection range is
determined by the log entries shown in the dialog and their commit
dates. Check the dates of your log entries.
It seems as if you load cycle reset all timestamps of your commits.
Since that shouldn't happen, something must have gone terribly wrong in
either your dump or load cycle.
