I think the dump filter can only filter out whole revisions, so you'd
end up deleting the whole import and redoing it without the junk file.
If you really want a clean log, I think that's the only choice. My
choice would be just to "svn delete svn-commit.tmp" and commit that
change (along with a log message explaining what it's about).

I've no idea why that file was created, but it does look like a tricky
problem: when importing, you don't have the .svn subdir to write temp
files in.
