Yes, it is recommended to do a svn dump/load for server updates.
Especially BDB based repositories can create tons of problems if the
old and new Subversion versions are linked against different BDB
versions. Once I even had to notice incompatibilities when I just did
an online update of my SuSE distribuntion which introduced a new BDB

FSFS based repositories shouldn't have such problems but IIRC SVN 1.1.*
used BDB by default. Some new features (svnsync?) arent't supported
with old repositories, so a svn dump/load cycle is recommended because
it also allows an upgrade to the most recent repository data format.

With best regards
