    I’m trying the beta WordPress importer and there seems to be a problem.  After confirming that I want to import categories and authors, I tell it to get started and it disables the UI as though it’s working, but never does anything after.  The xml file is around 800KB, with the following details:

    • Posts: 36
    • Pages: 4
    • Images: 235
    • Tags: 0
    • Categories: 5
    • Authors: 6

    If it’s trying to actively download the referenced images, then that’s probably the problem (I’m in a country with very slow access), but Task Manager doesn’t indicate anything like that.

    I’ve killed it and tried a few times but it’s always the same.  Is there anything else I can try or that I can provide to help further?

    After playing with a bit more, it looks like it’s the “Import authors” option that’s causing the issue.  If I don’t select that, it seems to work properly.  Again, let me know if I can provide anything to help.
