Thanks for the report! I see where this went wrong (Django changed how these management commands work, and it looks like this wasn't updated properly). We'll get this fixed for 4.0 final.

We are aiming to deprecate loaddb/dumpdb, as they just don't work well between releases of Django. Best bet in most situations is to use the database's native SQL dump/load tools for constructing a new database.
