I can confirm this issue in multiple versions of 3.2.x. During exportation of a VM, the UUID of the last "HardDisk" Image in the StorageControllers stanza is set as the UUID for all of the "HardDisk" Images in the stanza. Then when you import, you will get multiple copies of the last "HardDisk" Image.

A work around for this issue is to copy the UUIDs from the DiskSection stanza to the StorageControllers stanza.

Thanks very much for the report -- we hadn't been aware of this.

The bug is now fixed in trunk and will be in the 3.2.10 maintenance release also.
