svndumpfilter problems

Hi folks, I'm trying to clean up an old SVN repo. It's got a pretty
standard layout:


etc... I want to split out a couple of the projects in trunk to their
own repos. I dont mind moving things around in the new repos using svn
after it's loaded, i just want the history of project-A and nothing else
in a new repo.

First I dumped the whole repo:

    svnadmin dump repo > repo.dump

I learned by browsing mailing list archives that I couldnt dump with
--deltas. Once I learned that, the dump went fine.

Then filtered out the project I want:

    svndumpfilter include trunk/project-A --drop-empty-revs --renumber-revs <
repo.dump > project-A.dump

I created a new repo to hold project-A:

    svnadmin create project-A

But things broke when I tried to load it:

    svnadmin load project-A < project-A.dump
    <<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 3
    svnadmin: File not found: transaction '4-1', path 'trunk/project-A'
    * adding path : trunk/project-A ...

It looks like svndumpfilter is not widely used and not widely liked...
But can it do what I want here?
