svnrdump problem

I have googled and found no trace of this issue. I must be the first one
hitting it.

The problem: I'm trying to save&restore a private SVN repository using
svnrdump. svnrdump load, though, errors out at revision 6 with "Too many
open files" error. I checked with strace and svnrdump is open()ing a
huge amount of files.

The command line is (note that the target repository is local) as per
svn book:
svnrdump dump svn://svnserver/path/to/repo | svnrdump load

file:///home/me/repo is a newly created repository (using svnadmin
create repo). The only enable and relax is to enable the pre-revprop-hook.

I tried to increase ulimit -n to 2048 without success. The issue also
appears if I use a temp file for the dump (svnrdump dump works fine,
apparently). Also dumping and loading each revision separately does not
help. It must be specific to the revision.

What could be the problem?

Best regards.
