I don't think I saw an explanation for the problem you are seeing and
this doesn't sound like the best solution even if it happens to work.

Can you try the dump/load into a more recent subversion (preferably the
latest for your OS distro so it will be easy to keep up to date) to see
if that fixes the peg revision issue? If it does, that would be a
better base to do whatever you have to do to back in the subsequent updates.
