WXR uses conflicting file extensions

Similar to bug found in ticket 3840.
Using WordPress 2.1.2, if you export the xml and try to import the file -- unchanged, even using the default name -- the import fails without any reason given. The file shows up in the "uploads" page, but it does not restore the posts and everything to the new blog location.
The import page for importing from WP says it should be a *.wxr file (not the xml file that was exported), but even changing the file extension to wxr does not resolve the matter.
Nothing was imported to a NEW MySQL database. It was attempted with five new databases on three different servers by one person, and in a different country, on a different server, by another fear` (in #WordPress).
