Problem migrating repo from windows to linux

I started with an svn repo on a windows box, and now I'm trying to migrate
it to a linux box.

I did your standard dump on the windows box:
svnadmin dump /path/to/repo > reponame.dump

Then I moved it to the linux box and ran:
svnadmin load /path/to/repo ~/reponame.dump

And I got this error:
svnadmin: Malformed dumpfile header

I've searched around and the only lead I have is that it has to do with how
windows handles newlines compared to linux. Any ideas on fixing it?
