svnadmin dump | svnadmin load breaks peg revisions?

We have a quite large subversion repo. Actually, 6, but I'm mostly
interested in one I cloned to another using svnadmin dump | svnadmin

Things seemed to be going really smoothly, and then I tried to use an
old program I wrote that spiders around in our subversion directories,
svn:externals and comments looking to ferret out what changed from one
tag to another, using light set theory (OK, bags really).

But while the program works well on our old subversion server, on the
new subversion server it runs along for a while and then errors on a
missing peg revision. I checked the logs for when the directory was
deleted, and found that it was deleted one revision after my program's
trying to get it. And I svn list'd it at the desired peg revision,
and found that it wasn't there - nor was it there a few revisions
before that according to svn list. But svn log thinks it existed if I
check its parent directory.

Does svnadmin dump | svnadmin load mess with your peg revisions?

I'm using subversion 1.4.4.
