Pivotal Tracker import - Unexpected failure occurred. Importer will stop immediately.

Environment: JIRA Server 7.3.0

We have successfully migrated all but 1 of our projects from Pivotal Tracker into JIRA, and have been running successfully for about 6 weeks. We are now trying to import the final project across, but we are getting the following error:

This seems to have been asked previously[1], but the accepted answer was that it was an issue in the 7.0 release line (we have always been on 7.3).

We have tried renaming the PT Workflows and issue statuses that get created, but to no avail. Is there anything else that we can look at to resolve?
