Have you tried untarring the hotcopy directly into /home/repo without running any "svnadmin create" for that location? AFAIK, the repositories don't have to be "registered" somewhere special; they just have to be rooted in the same folder.

BTW, this has a chance of not working if you don't have the same versions of Subversion (and possibly BDB) on both machines. This happened to us and I had to svndump using an older version of Subversion and then svnrestore with the new one.
