RE: Re: checkout by date gives wrong version of repo

That doesn't fit, because those old revs do have an svn:date property.

It does look like those old ones were originally in CVS and came to Subversion via cvs2svn. But the usual revprops (svn:author, svn:date, svn:log) are present. I wonder if there's something else odd about the way cvs2svn generates its output that accounts for the difference.

If I understand correctly, when you fetch something based upon the
date, it is actually relying on an 'svn:date' property. It is
possible that before some point in time, this property is missing for
all of those revisions.
