Thanks for the tip. ... but, it should not make a difference.

... Oh My! ... it worked with cmd.exe. ... What's up?

A careful examination of the Take Command documentation shows an options
setting for programs that use multiple methods for getting output to
stdio may cause "lost data". The docs didn't make it clear what
"methods of getting output to stdio" meant. I would imagine it's the
difference between buffered (printf()) and unbuffered (write()) methods.

Changing the "Caveman" options for subversion/bin directory to "stdio
off" fixed the problem. dumps and loads work just fine now

... Just for the record in case anyone else asks or if the SubVersion
documentation maintainers want to say something about TakeCommand.

Does anyone but me use TakeCommand as a command processor?
