No surprises here. It seems that the MS Windows version uses BDB 4.3, while
the older one used 4.2. These database formats are not compatible, which is
why you are supposed to dump&reload.

About backward compatibility, I'm not sure what you mean. The protocols which
clients use to communicate has remained the same or backward compatible, so
there is no need for actions on your side. However, since all accesses
finally boil down to file:// accesses (IOW svnserve and apache are not really
servers but rather proxies) and these rely on the BDB interface, your apache
access got screwed indirectly.
