Here is the problem after the import:

it should be: znani / ciekawi inżynierowie dźwięku i producenci

When I tested it on Xenforo 1.1 using 3.2 importer, the national characters transferred correctly. Any ideas where to look to fix that?

There was a change to prevent character set conversions from happening unexpectedly with the results, as this usually causes a problem. However, it looks like your server is relying on them.

Try removing this line from library/XenForo/Importer/IPBoard.php:
$this->_sourceDb->query('SET character_set_results = NULL');
Then doing the import again. (You'll need to do a fresh install of XF.)
