not import any outlook express mail folder having three digits which are in

folder (around 4 gb)

Same problem.
I worked around it but it took me hours.
Changing a folder name, or changing the depths (number of levels of 
subdirectories) would help me importing a folder which would first block.

The bug is NOT systematic though.

Also, the general behavior when encountering a "bugged" folder was to stop 
importing the following (in alphabetical order) subfolders at the same level.
