This looks a lot like a newline problem.  COPY only likes Unix-style
newlines (\n, a/k/a LF).  You've got DOS-style newlines (\r\n, a/k/a
CR/LF) or possibly Mac-style newlines (\r, a/k/a CR) in your data file.
This can be blamed on whatever method you used to transfer the dump
file from old machine to new.  Try again, and try transferring the dump
as binary data not text.
