I'm running into a problem with this, and I wonder if there's already
a bug filed. I wasn't able to find a bug report, but it seems like
it's been mentioned before on the dev mailing list.

The error I'm encountering looks like this when I attempt to use
svndumpfilter on a repository dump. First, I dump the repository:

$ svnadmin dump /home/adamm/svn/my_root > dumpfile
* Dumped revision 1.
* Dumped revision 1731.

Then I try to filter the dumpfile:

$ cat dumpfile | svndumpfilter include \
> trunk/personal/code/c++/quizmo \
> --drop-empty-revs --renumber-revs > quizmo.dump
Including (and dropping empty revisions for) prefixes:

Revision 0 committed as 0.
Revision 1 skipped.
Revision 2 skipped.
Revision 1717 skipped.
svn: Invalid copy source path '/trunk/personal/code/c++/quizbot'

(Note: the quizbot directory was renamed to quizmo)

This problem was mentioned here (repro steps included):

and briefly here, though this post might not be as relevant:

Is there a fix for this, or do you have any idea if there is a way for
me to manually edit the dumpfile and somehow work around this bug?
