I agree Mario;

Especially when there is a check box you can tick in front of temp and 
state tiddlers if there are such tiddlers in the import. 

The check boxes are not honored so perhaps its a bug?

[prefix[$:/state]] [prefix[$:/temp]] can export them and they are listed on 
import, but checking the item for import, fails to import them.

Fixing this should still be backwardly compatible, as the user chooses with 
check boxes. If they do they should be permitted, if they done they will 
not be imported.
