Cannot import Confluence 4.2 DOC space


I need to import the Confluence 4.2 DOC space XML export to our site and am failing, leaving the imported space in a broken state. I need to remove it with command line interface tools.

I even set all user plugins to safe mode - same situation.

We run Confluence 4.2.12 on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit standalone. Before we had it under Windows, same Confluence version, and import went well.

Thank you.
