Import error with stsadm of unmodified fresh export
Greetings, I'm receiving the error below when I try to use stsadm to export a sub site in SharePoint, delete that sub site, and then import my 'export' to the same location.

I'm running these commands as the default SP super user. Any ideas or other information needed? Thanks, Tony !###########EXPORT/IMPORT/ERROR DATA BELOW###########!
