It seems like 3 options are described in the svnbook:

1) Initial data transfer using the synchronize function.
This is what is not really working in my situation.

2) Use hotcopy to make a backup copy of everything including hooks.
The caveat here is that the hotcopy needs to be using the exact same
version on both master and mirror. But I have 1.9.7 master on Windows
and 1.9.3 mirror on Ubuntu Linux

3) Use the dump + Load sequence to transfer the repo content.
Then after configuring all the hook scripts etc on the mirror the
synchronize init can be run with a flag to allow a non-empty target

Seems like I have to go route #3
