attachment stubs present in xml space export without attachments


when I xml-export a space without attachments and then import it in another instance, the attachments are still visible in the target. All the metadata is present (like the creator of the attachment), the only thing missing is the content. I've unpacked the zip of the export file and indeed, I can see the attachments in the big xml file.

We have confluence 3.5.16.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks for any answer,

David vonka

when I say 'export a space without attachments' i mean that I check-off the with attachment checkbox when exporting. The space does have (many) attachments that I do not want to include in the export.
