Something like that.
FWIW: This is not surprising.
When i moved GCC from CVS to SVN, the older versions of CVS had bugs that
the SVN importer couldn't handle, and i essentially had to rewrite
subversion's cvs2svn to make it work (plus, it was originally so slow it
would have taken 2 real-time months to do the import).
On the plus side, once we fixed all the bugs, we also were able to get RCS
history into the SVN history :)
