From your description above, it sounds as if revision 50 is included twice! Once at the end of the full dump and once at the
beginning of the incremental dump. In which case, things will not work properly.

If you load a full dump of revisions 1 to 50 and an incremental containing revisions 51 onward,
or a full dump of revisions 1 to 49, and an incremental containing revisions 50 onward, that will work properly.
