The «-r {DATE}» functionality is implemented by a server-side binary
search on svn:date values, so it misbehaves when the svn:date across the
entire history (of the whole repository, not just the target path) are
not in ascending order.

That's a known issue. It usually happens due to dump/load into an
existing repository.
