Has nobody else had problems with svndumpfilter2 or 3? I figured out a
few things since this last post. First, on Windows, to do
pipe/redirection with python, the python.exe must be part of the command
(auto-run doesn't work). Once I solved that problem, I confirmed the
file is received.

However, I still get errors that appear to be the result of a mismatch
in the number of bytes identified as part of a block, and the number of
bytes actually in the block. Is it possible that the fact that content
on Windows has a CRLF EOL rather than just LF? Is there a difference in
the 1.4.x dumpfile format from prior ones, and is it possible that these
scripts are out of date?
