[Proj] Long/Lat -> Gauss-Krueger, wrong coordinates?!

I'm sure I'm doing something obvious wrong, but I just don't see it...
I have got a problem projecting some coordinates form a
longitude/lattitude (WGS84) coordinate system to Gauss-Krueger Zone 3
projection using proj:
The resulting (Gauss-Krueger) coordinates are not what they should be
according to my reference dataset. They seem to be about 150 and 70
meters off in North and East direction.
The parameters I supply proj with are:
"+proj=tmerc +lat_0=0 +lon_0=9 +k=1.000000 +x_0=3500000 +y_0=0
+ellps=bessel +units=m no_defs" (to translate the WGS84 coordinates to
GK Zone 3)
(As far as I know I don't have to reproject the WGS84 coordinates to
something else, because Proj uses WGS84 (= no projection) as "base
format" - right?)
I got those parameters from an EPSG-list (EPSG 31463 - "DHDN / 3-degree
Gauss zone 3"), so they appear to be right to me...
If I use this projection parameters, the coordinates of e.g. a point
change as follows:
original coordinates: 8.05864684 (east), 52.322994 (north)
resulting GK coords: 3435824.638, 5799103.492
but they should be something like: 3435898, 5799265
What am I doing wrong??
Any other suggestions or hints?
Thank you in advance!
