I'm the person who got the bug put into the system. :)
But that's good information about the general problem with the API. I'll have to do some testing to make sure there aren't other zimlets that I've deployed that will cause me some support headaches down the road.
I have documented how to use the import/export functions for my users but the downloader zimlet would have been an easy alternative. Oh well....
Again, thanks for the information.
