That's a startling outcome no one's reported before! Yes, so far as
anyone knows (up until your report right here), importing in the
absence of branches and tags should be complete and accurate.

Can you provide more details, such as

* the whole command line you used to get this result
* Other "parameters", like CVSROOT environment variable, working directory
* details of the SVN installation (SVN version at client and server,
platform of each, are any of the filesystems remotely mounted,
anything else you know of that might be slightly "non-normal")
* a transcript of the conversion session (ideally, with "-v")

If either repository is available on the 'Net (or if they're small
enough to bundle up), that might be helpful, too.

You might be, it's certainly a good effort, too. If I had to guess,
I'd guess that it would be quicker to make your current efforts work
than to change horses. But if you're really considering conversion
for a serious amount of data, you probably ought to try both; they
have somewhat different philosophies, and one or the other might work
better for you.
