can't use load and dump to go from Win2000 -> WinXP ?

I'm transferring some repositories from a Win2000 server to a Windows XP
(both are up to date with relevant hotfixes / service packs)
Using svn 1.0.6, I can do "svnadmin dump repos > dumpfile" ok.
I can create a new repos and load this dumpfile back in on the win2000
However, when I copy the dumpfile to the Windows XP machine, I can't load it
svnadmin load Volvo < volvo-dump

svn: Found malformed header block in dumpfile stream
Any thoughts? I've tried two different repositories and I get the same
I've been able to successfully create a repository and access it, add files,
I copied the file between machines using normal windows (samba) networking,
Apologies if this is a FAQ but I did attempt to search the mailing list
FYI I have also tried creating and loading the dumpfile using svn 1.1-rc2
