I started noticing since the release of version 0.3 of the WordPress Importer that the parser is ignoring the value set in the <wp:attachment_url> of the WXR XML when it tries to download file attachments.
I was able to verify this by looking into the value of the $import_data variable inside the WP_Import::import_start method. Since the parser is ignoring the wp:attachment_url value, the importer uses the value of <guid> for the URL download — which most of the times (at least to me) isn’t correct.
Anyone experiencing the same problem?
