Unable to parse reversed revision range

I am doing a dump/load of a repository, and ran into an odd (fatal)
error on the load:

<<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 209
svnadmin: E200020: Unable to parse reversed revision range '29584-200'

I figured this would be easy enough to fix by adding
--bypass-prop-validation to the load, but I got the same error. I
looked in the dump file, and sure enough, the rev numbers are backwards
as stated. However, I don't understand why load would fail. I am just
trying to do some repository migrations and I could care less whether
those properties are correct or not, that's the users' problem (good
attitude, eh? :) Shouldn't --bypass-prop-validation cover this
validation as well?

I thought about correcting the property, but since it is a versioned
property, I'm not sure how it can be fixed (without doctoring the svn
dump file).

I tried this with both SVN 1.6.11 and 1.8.9. But both got the exact
same error.

Is this a known problem (fixed since 1.8.9) or is there a workaround?
