Thank you very much for fixing these bugs!
If you something, not a blank sheet, after importing - it's a good sign :)
Please check that the last words of the imported document are "A Final

In that case - I didn't ask to save! I started AW, imported the document
(answering 'y' to assertion prompt, and got empty sheet since importing
failed), and closed AW using window manager's close button. AW didn't ask me
anything - it silently rewritten the file. And I have autosaving disabled!
That's catastrophic bug!
