Upgrade to the RC of 2.5.04 available on the www.cvsnt.org/wiki web
site.  IF the problem still occurs in that release we can ask some more
questions and look into it.  2.5.02 is quite old now.

The 'import' command is for creating 'vendor branches' it is not
actually an import at all.  In 2.5.03 we tried to generalise it a little
and removed the requirement for 'release tag' and 'vendor tag' but the
history of the command is the same - it's not designed to import, it's
designed to create a vendor branch.
