Used hotcopy for Windows to Linux migration, any problems?

A week after our Windows to Linux repository migration using "svnadmin
hotcopy" we realised we couldn't edit revision properties; this was because
the pre-revprop-change hook script was in DOS (CRLF) format.

My question is what other problems should we expect having moved from
Windows to Linux hosting using "svnadmin hotcopy" for the migration?

Further detail:

We moved our repository from a Windows host to a Debian Linux host under
VMware. I had assumed that using a hotcopy would be appropriate for the
migration since we were running the same version (1.4.2) on the two hosts.
On reflection that was a mistake as the recommended procedure is dump/load,
but we haven't noticed anything wrong so far other than the aforementioned

As a side note, we found Subversion 1.4.2 on Debian under VMware to be 25%
faster than running the same version natively on the very same Windows
Server 2003 machine.
