CSV / TSV Import - Why aren't comment dates being imported correctly?

I have a CSV (actually tab delimited) file which is somewhat successfully importing with all comments.

The "Date Created" date is importing correctly for the issue.

However, the comment dates are also being set to the "Date Created" date for the issue. 

I am setting the date format to yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss in the import wizard, and here is an example of a comment from the TSV file:

"2011-09-08 15:17:38;System;Change Request 1906 is created"

Where am I going wrong? It seems that the comments are in a random order due to there being no date/time differences.

Hey Brendan,

You were a fool, and within the CSV processing python script you defined the wrong column to append the to the CSV rows, thus breaking the formatting of the import file. 

It was all your own silly fault, and you shouldn't have bothered these good people with this particular problem.

Try harder to avoid such embarrassment next time.
