You should be using replication between your CouchDBs to transfer
the database from one system to the other. No guarantees are made
about the portability of .couch files between operating systems.

Replication is well documented:

I could hazard some guesses about why you have partial compatibility
in the setup you're using, but I don't want to get your hopes up,
as we're not going to support this scenario.
