This is normal. Every time you update or sync against the SVN server,
your local history is rewritten if you have local commits: All your
local commits are rebased on top of the latest changes coming from
If you want to avoid this, only push to your Git mirror when your
git-svn clone and the SVN repo are in sync. Doing so ruins the whole
point of your Git mirror, I assume.
So, I'm afraid you have to get used to just force-pushing to your Git
mirror. Even though this is not considered good practice, it should be
fine as long as you are the only one using this mirror.
Alternatively, you could consider some other mechanism for backup (rsync, etc).
