A question about svn-backup-dumps.py

I'm using the script svn-backup-dumps.py which I downloaded from


I read the user guid at the beginning, but I have some problems with
the '-c' option. If I invoke it as

svn-backup-dumps.py -c 1000 <repos> <dumpdir>

it behaves as expected, but if I set a lower count, say

svn-backup-dumps.py -c 200 <repos> <dumpdir>

It behaves strangely, i.e. it restart the dump from the revision 0
every time I invoke it (if HEAD is 1160 and the last backup generated
all the files the second invocation should start from revision 1000,
isn't it? - I don't remove the old files from the dump directory), or
it start dumping in an opposite order (if HEAD is 1200 it generates
first the dump for the revisions 1000-1200 then those for 800-1000 and
so on).

Did anyone else experiment such troubles? Maybe it's me who is unable
to call it properly.
