As you have found out, cvs2svn has a few bugs still. Could you try copying
mnassert.c,v to an empty directory, and running cvs2svn on it, to see if
that still reproduces the bug?

If it does, and your repository does not contain private data, you could
file an issue in IssueZilla, and attach (compressed) mnassert.c,v to assist
in tracking down the bug.

If the repository does contain private data, you could remove it whilst
still preserving the revision structure, by deleting all contents between
the pairs of '@' characters following "text" and "log" for each revision.
This censored RCS file would probably also reproduce the bug.
