Huh? What's this? I've been importing third-party sources to the same 
vendor branch frequently for over a year now without problems. I thought 
this was kind of the whole point of Import. Actually, last time I did 
this was two days ago, using CVSNT 2.0.30. I never ever got this 
message. I must be missing something obvious about this example here, 
don't I?
