Good to hear that it's not just me going mad.

That's true. Does the "XML Data Export" thingy in Sourceforge even include
tracker attachments? I'm guessing not, which is yet another problem. Of

bugzilla as needed. Not that much of a problem after all, I guess.

There must be someone else who have done this transition.
