Argh, this is frustrating. The full dump worked better. But I had to 
change svn2bzr to open files in binary mode. But then it barfs when 
there is a Node-action: change in the dump file. Apparently svn2bzr does 
not support the full dump file format or there is some other problem. 
Can you run svn2bzr on the dumpfile without problems?

I could try the other svn2bzr branch which is supposed to work directly 
on the repo. But that will have to wait until tomorrow. Well I did a 
quick test but that branch crashes hard when I try to work directly to 
the repo on ipython.scipy.org. Perhaps we could try to do the tarball of 
the whole repo.

It seems these more advanced problems are tricky to do on windows. I 
sure hope it is easier to work with bzr in a normal situation.
