WordPress Simple Tagging Import Problem

Simple Tagging Import is NON-FUNCTIONAL. When attempting to import tags the following occurs:
1) Step 1 -> Runs smoothly, counts the rows in WPPREFIX_stp_tags table, presents the user with number and 'Step 2' button.
2) Step 2 -> Appears to run, for 1-2 minutes, and then the loading stops and it displays "Adding Tags to Posts…" it does not go ANYWHERE after this, and is broken halfway through the import.
When examining this further, I have concluded that it successfuly adds the tags from the WPPREFIX_stp_tags table to the wp_terms table, but fails to add the tags to the posts; hence failing to create the relationships between a post and it's tag(s).
This bug prevents any user relying on Simple Tagging in previous versions to upgrade to 2.5.x. It makes the upgrade task impossible.
I tested this bug in 3 browsers (Safari, IE, firefox), the bug remains consistent.
When working on this bug it will be important to keep in mind that many users will have already gotten halfway through the (broken) Simple Tagging import process. Therefor, the script will need to recognize a broken transaction (tags already imported, but no relationships made)
