Dropping empty revs with svndumpfilter

I'm trying to prepare a project for uploading into google code. This project resides in a large repository among many other projects, so I dumped the repository to extract the desired one. Svndumpfilter fails because the project was renamed, so I used svndumpfilter2 (http://www.dehora.net/journal/2007/04/patched_svndumpfilter2.html) to do the work.

This leaves a lot of empty revisions, and I want to get rid of them, so I am running

   svndumpfilter --renumber-revs --drop-empty-revs \
      include project <project.dump >project.dump.slim

But it isn't working, the slim dump is as large as the original and is full of lines like this:

   Revision-number: 1267
   Content-length: 0

I tried loading the project.dump into a new repository and dumping it again,just in case something was not right in the dump file created by the svndumpfilter2 script, but it still doesn't work.

I'm using subversion 1.6.5 on ubuntu 8.04.

Any ideas?
