Not all comments imported from MT (2 posts)

    I just installed WordPress a little while ago, and ran import-mt.php. I don't know why, but there is one post where the comments were never imported. I checked the exported text file from MovableType, and sure enough, the code for the comments are there, but I don't understand why the importing script isn't importing the comments for this particular entry. One of the commenters left their e-mail address within the comment. Could it be because of a sanitation issue?
    Furthermore, I think there is something wrong with configuration. I tried posting a comment to test, and then I tried to post another and I got an error message, "Sorry, you can only post a new comment once every 10 seconds. Slow down cowboy." So, I waited well past 10 seconds, but it still wouldn't let me leave a comment. At this rate, commenters would only be allowed to comment once, and never more. What's going on with the flood control?

    The only thing that should cause the import script to choke is a comment or post with the things that MT uses to separate parts of its import/export format (lines that start with five or seven dashes, or words like COMMENT: or AUTHOR: in all caps at the start of lines). Can you give us a link to the export file, and the text that would let us find the problem post, or better yet a copy-n-paste of just the entry before, that entry, and the entry after?
