svnadmin load fails when processing delete transaction

I'm trying to migrate a portion of my SVN repository from my repository to
my clients'. I generated the dumpfile, then ran an improved version of
svndumpfilter to include the portion I want and also convert any copy
operations to additions.

When I try to load the dump file into a brand new test repository, however,
I get the following error:

    <<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 357
         * deleting path :
clients/scripps/cats/securitybridge/trunk/lib/scaffold.zip ...svn: File not
found: transaction '357-1', path

Revision 357 was a delete operation of a binary file: scaffold.zip. If I do
an SVN list on the test repository after the load fails, I see that
scaffold.zip is indeed there at the expected path, so I'm kind of at a loss
as to why svnadmin load can't find the file to delete it. The transaction
from the dump file looks fine to me:

    Revision-number: 357
    Prop-content-length: 175
    Content-length: 175

    K 7
    V 71
    Scaffold classes are included in cats20lib.jar, so this is not needed.

    K 10
    V 9
    K 8
    V 27

    Node-path: clients/scripps/cats/securitybridge/trunk/lib/scaffold.zip
    Node-action: delete
    Prop-content-length: 10
    Content-length: 10


I attempted to use svndumptool split to split up the dump file so I could
isolate the error, but it had a problem with the same revision:

    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/svndump/node.py", line 310, in
        raise SvnDumpException, "Cannot set properties for action '%s'" \
    svndump.common.SvnDumpException: Cannot set properties for action

Again, this error doesn't make sense to me, because a delete action should
be able to have properties like it does above. Would anyone be able to help
me with this issue? It would be much appreciated.
