turns out that this is a documented BUG in svn2cvs, possibly a 
workaround exists. The problem now is that XFCE_4_2_0 etc branches also 
are all broken.

The only solution I see is to reconvert, all other options just increase 
the chaos. I'm not 100% sure it will work but at least I can verify 
quickly that it's ok.

Unfortunately I left my PC at home off, so I cannot start converting 
until I get home... It's way too much work for espresso (1.5h at home 
vs. 5-6h).
