I am a little late on this thread.
There is another way of converting to Subversion: Write an importer
that creates a dump file, and then import this dump file int a new SVN
repos. Then you have full control over all propertiers and commit
dates, regardless of the current client's or server's time.
As far as I know, the cvs to svn script works this way.

And it is much faster to test and debug, I guess running your
converter doing real checkins for every revision might take some time.
