Oh, my. Stop right there. Remember how svnrdump didn't work? Now
you're adding another peoblem, picking and choosing individual
components with svndump. Do a test svnadmin dump, and reload of
everything to a new repo, *first*. This helps eliminate confusion and
verifies that the basic process is workable.
*Then* consider optimizing. Dump from the *new* repo, with the latest
tools, and see if picking and choosing works there. And in general,
avoid picking and choosing with svnadmin dump: it's never worked that
well if components were moved among various target directories, if
"trunk" directories got renamed or re-arranged, etc.
Frankly, also, if you're planning on re-arranging the material and
putting up a pruned repository, why are you bothering with dumps? Why
not save yourself some grief, lock the original content in a final
tag, do an export and import, and start with a completely clean new
