I'm not familiar with the errors you've reported; they definitely seem
to be a concern.

Do you still have a copy of the dumpfile both on Windows and on RHEL?
Before people dive into debugging, let's rule out things like an error
in transferring the file. Can you run an md5 sum on the dumpfile on
both platforms and make sure that it's the same? (Note that dumpfiles
look vaguely like text files, but are actually binary.)
