I found the problem.  The document was password protected.  Believe it or
not, that will cause a problem. :)

Once the password protection was removed, the file imported without a hitch.

No you're not. Those exact steps should import the file in question. There
are some encoding issues which prevents importing. You could try importing
from some other directory than the current one. And if anybody knows
anything about gzopen and supported encodings, please let us know. See the
