Embedded images missing (2 posts)

    I'm busy setting up a wordpress multi user site, importing stand alone wordpress site with the import/export tool on wordpress.
    Had some issues with the xml feed, the define( 'IMPORT_DEBUG', true ); showed error which i could not really fix. It gave an error on embedded html where divs weren't matching. Fixed windows encoding stuff though.
    Did the import which took quite long and which I eventually stopped after 20 min. The file is less than 500Kb.
    All the content was created but for some reason the embedded images is not showing. I dont know if the blogs.dir in wordpressmu is causing the issu because the file excist but the file in the mysql db is pointing to the wrong location.
    Does the importer keep in mind when it is a mu import to change the location. If not, do you have any suggestions how I can make appropriate changes because I need to do many sites still.

    After hours of searching i've discovered that with the import, every url to a file (pdf, flv, images) got a "1" added to the filename. The url: "image.jpg" has become "image1.jpg".
    I'm hoping there's a way to rename all files in the database, otherwise you'll have to rename all filenames on the server.
