Is there a possibility to import the whole history by use of the subversion repository browser?

The import by use of the subversion repository browser seems to be only possible to the point of the last copy of a component in SVN. Is there a possibility to get the complete history?

As we discovered several problems with importing SVN dump files, I now try to find an acceptable way to import completely manually by use of the subversion repository browser. I know that there is a lot of manual work necessary but at least I can handle structures that are not conform to that one expected by the dump file importer.

I tried to do it by importing step by step. In each step I take the revisions from one copy to the next. But even for the first part I get an exception like follows:

An error occurred updating to revision 315 for path 'work/component/trunk' in repository 'http://repository:8080/repo'

I tried the same using revisions with a distance to the ones marking the copy actions, but the import seems to not work at all, if I give any range for the revisions.

New finding: sometimes it imports without errors. But I can't figure out any strict rules about importing with copies. Sadly I have a lot of copies from and to branches here. Any experience with that?
