UWC throwing RemoteException for specific Mediawiki pages

I'm trying to use UWC 4.0 to migrate a Mediawiki installation to Confluence 5.4.4. The vast majority of pages convert and upload to the new empty space but some specific pages fail, such as Main_Page.txt:

org.apache.xmlrpc.XmlRpcException: java.lang.Exception: com.atlassian.confluence.rpc.RemoteException: You're not allowed to view that page, or it does not exist.

It seems Confluence had a problem with Main_Page.txt because it had a sed expression which contained '/-/' - removing the hyphen fixed the problem. Other parts of the line were interpreted as formatting commands and were rendered as bold.
