like i said, you must make sure that the filesystem componentry is the same 
on both sides. gadlfly does not know about the zope export/import at all. 
you must copy all those files manually. export/import only affects data in 
the ZODB, it does not touch anything on the file system.

synchronize those filesystem components, restart the site and see if that
