Unfortunately I'm not exporting the database SQL directly as you are .. I'm using
the exportDump.php maintenance script to get the pages and page content as an XML file.
You're approach works because your database transfer includes all data in all tables..
my approach is just the page names and page content as XML imported as new articles.
I can't (really don't want to) export the database directly as SQL because
it's a very old version of MW 1.17 .. and the new site is MW 1.30.
The XML export from 1.17 and import to 1.30 went wonderfully well (except no images).. I
have the image folder from the 1.17 site copied in to the 1.30 site and I just need to
figure out how to tell MW to "rebuild the image pages" from the images folder.

I don't know why your approach does not work.
This is what I do: I export the database as sql using pypmyadmin, import it to the new
host and copy the images folder. This has always worked for me
