Problem Loading Huge Repository

As part of the work of my PhD thesis I need to load the ASF Subversion repository into my own local repository in order to mine and extract information from the repository without overloading the ASF servers.
I have downloaded the repository dump and started loading it into my own repository. But the repository is huge (~45GB), and loading it using 'svnadmin load' will take me days (~15).
I tried 'svndumpfilter' to filter out some projects but I get the error 'svndumpfilter: Unsupported dumpfile version: 3'. I'm using 'svndumpfilter' version 1.6.12. Is there any way to overcome this error?
Do you know any faster way to load the dump file or to filter out some projects/revisions so I can speed up the process?
Thank you in advance.
