I don't think the problem was the dates, but that the (converted) commit
dates are not in sequence with the revision numbers. This actually isn't
wrong[1], per se, but it can be confusing.

None of which answers Felix's original question...

[1] Consider to repos, A and B, that have been in use for a year. Now
dump B, and load into A. All the commits from B will have a higher
revision number than any in A, but the dates will be the original commit
times.
