WHen I export a couple of blog posts from my main blog to my development blog the images are not copied into the media library.
Can be reproduced by trying to load the attached xml in a blog

No attachments are imported because there are no attachments defined in the export file. I assume this is because you filtered your export to only output some a set of posts. Currently attachments are only exported when you choose "All content", so this is an export problem rather than an import one (and there might be a ticket for it already).

Ok, but when I do all content I get a file that's way to big to export/import...
