I cannot reproduce this problem using command-line tools, but I was

(svn_delta_editor_t) function are being called.
The order I see is:
The git-svn code is expecting a close_file call before the add_file
call in #5. It appears to me that the svn_delta_editor_t API 
requires this close_file call. It looks to me like this is Issue
Indeed it is.
And it is actually documented here:
and mentioned here:
In other words, this is a limitation of the Serf-based backend that
has been around since Subversion 1.4. I'm aware that it isn't
documented as well as it should be, but the bulk-mode workaround
exists in part as a workaround for that, effectively disabling the
more efficient HTTPv2 protocol.
In the meantime, it might be a good idea to relax the restrictions
in git-svn to account for the way the HTTPv2 protocol works.
