I'd prefer to retain the history, but I don't know of another way to
reload successfully.

My initial approach was to copy the backed up repository back to its
rightful place. This put the repository at revision 306, and it works
perfectly except that it's 10 revisions behind where the "live" code
is. Since I don't actually have the incremental revision dump files to
get me there, I had to start over. What I did was blow away the
repository, and create it anew in the same directory. Then I went to
the command line and did the svnadmin load command using the most recent
dump file. Is there another way that you know of?
