Please report a small test case that demonstrates the problem, with the 
exact commands. A script that starts with "svnadmin create repo" and 
continues with "svn mkdir ..." and "svnadmin dump ..." and 
"svndumpfilter ..." would be ideal.

Without knowing what commands you used, my first guess is you used 
something like "svndumpfilter include / --drop-empty-revs".

--drop-empty-revs only removes revisions that *svndumpfilter* makes 
empty, not revisions that were already empty before svndumpfilter 
received them. In that case maybe you want --drop-all-empty-revs 
instead. Is that it?
