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 ;)
