user name is null warning when importing issues with attachments using CSV

I created a small CSV file with a few issues, some contain attachments.

The CSV import process is successful, however I get the following warning:

"User named null not found. attaching to issue with currently logged in user instead"

How can I specify the user name?

Actually you can't and the whole warning is unnecessary. We got rid of it in the newest version.

You'll be able to specify the username in the next release, see

If you need it now please let me know and I'll attach a snapshot version to JIM-634
