I'm running into problems when trying to import the contents of an ancient MovableType blog. The contents is in a .txt file and it looks like it's using the correct format. Here's a short snippet from it:
TITLE: Initial message
ALLOW COMMENTS: 0
CONVERT BREAKS: __default__
ALLOW PINGS: 0
PRIMARY CATEGORY: Blogging

This is my first blog in history. I don't really know what to say, so I won't say anything. I'll probably spend a decent amount of time customizing this blog so it looks just the way I want it to. It'll take some time I guess, but it'll be fun!
I'd like to thank kerz and MozillaZine.org for hosting this weblog. Thanks a lot!
Thanks also to Bj�rn Thornell who switched workday with me today because I had a cold. GoSpurs!! :)

The importer happily accepts the file and after importing it asks me if I want to map the "djst" username from the old blog with "davidtenser" of the new blog, and then it shows me the "Processing..." screen.
One minute later I get the email saying "Import successful", but there are no blog posts imported whatsoever. And no error messages either!
I've tried this twice and get the same results. What gives?
The blog I need help with is temporarytestblogtoberemoved.wordpress.com.
