The dumpfile format should make that a non-issue.

Is it possible the file just got corrupted when transferring it
between the systems? Have you tried creating a new dumpfile from the
Windows box & loading that into the Linux-hosted repository? How about
loading the dumpfile into another repository on the Windows box?

You did run svnadmin create /path/to/repo before attempting the load, right?
