Svndumpfilter problems

I'm trying to convert my old VSS database to Subversion using vss2svn
0.10. This is working well and creates a huge dumpfile (7.5GB).
Next I need to run svndumpfilter on it to retrieve a number of projects
(one at a time) so that I can add them to an existing SVN repository. I
use this command (Windows):

        svndumpfilter include $/Projects/Dev/Project.Name
--drop-empty-revs <\\servername\l$\vss2svn\vss2svn-dumpfile.txt

No error messages, but when I follow the directions given in
to tweak the Node-path and Copyfrom-path headers, I can't find them.
Looking further in the file reveals that there's no content, only the
revision information and this is confirmed when I restore the dumpfile
to a separate repo.
The original dumpfile does contain code and the project name.
I thought it might be due to running this on Windows (CR issues maybe)
so I tried the same on Cygwin with the cat program and got exactly the
same results. In fact I found out that it doesn't matter which project
name I set as the include parameter, the size of the dumpfile is always
exactly the same.
I found a lot of messages about similar issues with svndumpfilter but no
solution. Can anyone help me on this one?
