Problems with svndumpfilter

As many others I have had some problems with svndumpfilter in the last couple of days. Yesterday I decided to move yet another directory from our old subversion repository to a fresh repository of its own. As I have mentioned earlier I simply tried to issue the following command:

svnadmin dump /path/to/repos | svndumpfilter include rss > rss.dump

This failed with the dreaded svndumpfilter: Invalid copy source path error message. After asking my friend google I found a replacement for svndumpfilter made by my hero of the day Simon Tatham.

After issuing the following command:

svnadmin dump /path/to/repos | ./svndumpfilter2 /path/to/repos rss > rss.dump

everything seemed to be working as expected.
