Hi Tim,

sorry to hear that you lost the input data file,  I briefly looked at 
the import code,  import does not modify the input data file. It just 
reads the data file  using FileInputStream.  Considering you killed 
the process , it can not be an issue with some cleanup bug.  May be it 
something else on your system, that corrupted the file.

you should be able to kill the process during an import without any 
issues,  data inserted into the table will be rolled back.

If you find import is indeed corrupting the file , then it is bug.
