Yes, that would be fixing the symptom. But the heart of the problem
seems to be (as you said yourself a while ago in this discussion) that
the whole "dirty mark" scheme should not really be used during an
initial import at all, or should it?
I guess this needs some thorough investigation and I always hoped that
someone more familar with that part of the code (hint, hint) would find
the time to have a look ;)
