Migrating Confluence 4.3 linux to windows - not all plugins transferred

I'm in the process of migrating our production Confluence 4.3.0 to a new windows server:

I've got the new system up and running, but not all of the user installed plugins have migrated.

* System Info:

** Server live:

*** Ubuntu Linux 2.6.31-14-server; MySQL 5.1.37-1ubuntu5.

** Server test:

*** Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit; MySQL 5.5.28.

* The version of Confluence is the same in both instances.

* I've used an XML backup performed when no other users are online.

* I've synced the home directories, excluding some variations in the {{confluence.cfg.xml}} (license, connection URL to isolate from live system)

Interestingly, many of the User-installed Plugins appear in the test server under System Plugins, and the Configuration sidebar has different options for plugins.
