Decompression of svndiff data failed

Aren't repositories and dumps portable between Windows and Linux?

I'm loading a 7GB dumpfile with svn 1.4.2 built from tarball, deps,
apr-1.2.8 on RHEL4. The original repository was originally created and
dumped using 1.4.0 svn client on windows. It was then dumped again with the
updated 1.4.2 Windows binary release, with the same result.

Below are the errors.

$ svnadmin verify repo_created_on_windows
* Verified revision 0.
svnadmin: Decompression of svndiff data failed

$ svnadmin load repodir < my_8GB_dumpfile_created_on_windows
<<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 1
* adding path : source/somefile
 (... several hundred large files succeed)
* adding path : source/someotherfile

svnadmin: Checksum mismatch, file '/source/yetanotherfile':
 expected: 43e6daaaa45805a2cf8c3b65d9198086
      actual: 7ddf690e85dcd6466daec1204fb1197c

 * adding path : source/yetanotherfile ...
What's particularly odd is that every time you run the svnadmin load
command, it fails on different files.

The svnadmin 1.4.2 load and verify both work fine on Windows.

Is the Windows subversion binary linked against DLLs I should be aware of,
for example zlib?

I've attached the config.log for svn 1.4.2, apr, apr-utils
