Importer multiplies category with non-ASCII name

Happens in current trunk (r13945) with WRX produced by same revision.

Confirmed on two different fresh setups, Windows/Apache and Debian.


One of the categories in the import file has a Greek name, an ASCII slug, and 10 posts.

WordPress imports the category one time with the correct name and slug but with no posts, and then makes another 10 categories with the same name, with slugs sequentially numbered, and with 1 post in each (that is, in total, the 10 posts that belong to the category).

See attached screenshot if you are not with me by now. :-)

If the cause is difficult to find, maybe I can help by trying to find the revision the issue first appeared.
