Repository Dump/Delete/Load Log History Issue (maybe)

So... let's just say I accidentally deleted a couple of files (read:
directories >:-( from my repository AND the (foolishly) committed the
delete. DOH!
No problem, simply dump the previous versions of the repository (not
including the delete), delete it, and re-create it using the dump file.
>svnadmin dump /my/repository -r1:62 > dumpfile.txt
>mv /my/repository /my/repository_bakup
>svnadmin create /my/repository
>svnadmin load /my/repository < dumpfile.txt

The dumpfile.txt looks OK (last line = "------- Committed revision 62
Revisions 63 and 64 were the commits that I wanted to back out.

Looking at the history log, everything looks good.
However, upon my next 2 commits the history log file shows the text from
the old 63 and 64 (commit 65 no shows the proper text).

Looks like even though I dumped revisions 1 through 62, the dumped
history file still had 64 entries in it.
