non-existent revision after dump + svndumpfilter

we have a large svn repository we need to split into mutiple, so I run a
svnadmin dump and svmdumpfilter to split out the needed subtree and loaded
it into a new svn repository. This works fine and I get exact the desired

My problem is there are a lot of exiting working copis and I want to be able
to switch them without haveing to do a new checkout (because actually
nothing changed and if all users do a new checkout this would cause a lot of
network traffic over a slow link). So I tried svn switch --relocate which
works, but doing a svn up afterwards gives me a "Reference to non-existent
revision XXX' in the Apache error log.

Of course this revision does not exist, because of the svndumpfilter, the
new respository has fewer revision then the old one. Is there any way around
this problem. Something to tell svn to bring the revisions of the repository
and the working copy in sync?
