Attached a version of the patch against the current trunk.

To test on a fresh trunk install
1) apply patch http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/8455/import-usability-preselect.diff
2) import http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/8455/create_users.xml and make sure you let WordPress create the missing users
3) import http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/8455/user-assignment-test-data.xml and see if the user dropdowns are prefilled correctly.

Replying to tott:

Attached a version of the patch against the current trunk.

To test on a fresh trunk install
1) apply patch http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/8455/import-usability-preselect.diff

This patches OK against r13305

2) import http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/8455/create_users.xml and make sure you let WordPress create the missing users

When I do this, the users aren't created and the posts are all assigned to 'admin'. Verified I left the user dropdowns in the default state (- Select -). Did it twice for good measure and still don't get the users created.

3) import http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/8455/user-assignment-test-data.xml and see if the user dropdowns are prefilled correctly.
