[MediaWiki-l] Import issues

Hello, John.
I had problem of incompleteness, while exported (and then imported) files 
one by one. In my case, the incompleteness appeared because I had exported the 
articles to files with filenames that coincided with titles of the 
articles. For simple titles (one or few words) this worked well,
but if two articles have titles that differ only with the capitalization,
or the title contains slash /, or parenthetis (), the resulting mediawiki 
happens incomplete.
(Then I changed the exporting style; I just numerate the articles.)
Can it be anything similar in your case?
