And it's still failing in the same way. The version you recommended is
identical to the first one I tried. I may have a try at adding a retry
to the perl script, if I can learn a bit of perl fast enough.

FWIW polarion fails too. It creates a dumpfile, but svnadmin load fell
over importing r1592 with a checksum error. Looks like the polarion
converter is buggy. To compound the problem, the VSS database was
corrupt (surprise). After 'fixing' it so that Analyze reports no errors,
I was still getting missing versions reported by polarion. I think I may
have to give this up as a bad job and just import the latest tree
without history. Sigh.
