    I believe I figured the problem out (hopefully) though it will require me to do another import. I don't believe the phpBB attachments in /files/ were uploaded in binary format, which screwed up the import of attachments. Reuploading 1GB worth of attachments now in Binary to see if that fixes it.

    I have had that happen before, when FTPing attachment folders in "auto" mode. It is best to explicitly set binary mode when transferring attachments and avatars.

    FileZilla.. by default it uploads everything without an extension as ASCII
