Bad MySQL, bad!
Yeah, I found that article yesterday and shook my head. It's not a
helpful attribute at all! :)

*nod* I got so frustrated that I tried importing another file and had
it work instantaneously.
Go figure, right?
I'm guessing that I had extraneous characters in the file and that's
what was making it goof, so this morning, I reexported it just as a tab
delineated file and it imported correctly.
Thanks again to the 'chix for all your help!
