Is the local site running the same version of PostgreSQL or a later
version than the client site?  If you try to restore into an earlier
version then you could have problems.

How are you transferring the file from the client site to the local
site?  Is it possible that the file was modified in transit?  I
wonder if carriage returns have been added -- do you see ^M at the
ends of lines when you run the following command?

head postgres.sql | cat -v

The "timestamp" type holds a date and time; PostgreSQL shouldn't
care about the value as long as it's syntactically correct (although
it's possible that a trigger or constraint might care).
