Abnomal behaviour: svnadmin dump - invalid dump or not?

we're using SVN 1.1 with Berkeley DB. And have the folowing strange
behaviour with svnadmin dump:

svnadmin dump repos --revision /tmp/SVN.repos.dmp
svnadmin dump repos --revision 421:526 > /tmp/SVN_421-526.repos.dmp
svnadmin dump repos --revision 510:526 > /tmp/SVN_510-526.repos.dmp

ls -l SVN*.dmp
864835816 SVN.LaRa_EOL.dmp
275645857 SVN_421-526.LaRa_EOL.dmp
819678954 SVN_510-526.LaRa_EOL.dmp #!!! Why is this dump 3 times bigger
than the one from 421-526?

As you can see there is an blatant difference in size between the
'range' dumps. The smaller range produces the bigger dump! How can this
be? As far as I understand the svnadmin dump it must create a head
version an then the changenge per revision. So in summary this dump from
421 to 526 shoul not be 3 time smaller than the one from 510 to 520 -
right or not ?
SO is this an invalid dump or kinda bug or do I miss an important point
in the svnadmin dump usage.
Importing the three dumps and comparing their size results in a similar
values comnpared to the dumps.

Are the dumps now correct or not?

Kind Regards Marcus
