svnadmin dump fails with E200020: Pathname not terminated by ':'

Hi list,
we have a quite old & grown svn repository here. With some "interesting"
svn:mergeinfo Properties. (see the diff below)

This seems to be been allowed in earlier svn versions.

For backup Issues svn copy worked fine for all the time,
but now we want to update our server (svn version & hardware) and
do a full svn dump/load cycle:

svnadmin dump --incremental -r 59979 src-100904/ > /root/src.dump
svnadmin: E200020: Pathname not terminated by ':'

As reading a little bit in the docs & code I found out that there is a
possibility to bypass the check on svn load (--bypass-prop-validation),
but not with svn dump.

It looks like we have mutliple Changes like this one.

Does anyone have suggestions how to get on with that issue?

Kind regards
  - Jan
