2 problems. Export on Wikipedia only gets about 100 revisions rather
than the full history, unless you use the API. In my experience, you
can not import more than 2MB at a time using Special:Import. You need
to break the file up or import it server-side instead using one of the
scripts in the maintenance directory.
