It's "svnserve --version" that shows the back-ends supported, not "svn
--version". svn is showing the options it supports for accessing the
repository, svnserve shows the options for the format of the repository
(BDB, FSFS) on the disk. 1.3.2 certainly should include FSFS.

That's bizarre. Like you, though, I have no idea what it means. Assuming
you see no such weirdness in the restore cycle for the dump/load method, I'm
not sure it is worth pursuing. Perhaps it is a manifestation of
corruption/inconsistent state in the un-tar'd backup file, though that is
not how I would expect such problems to manifest themselves. But then I'm
just guessing on what you'd get trying to read a problematic backup....

Good luck with your new procedure,
Karen
