[dokuwiki] Unable to import old changelog during update to 2008-05-05

Hi List

I am encountering a problem during the update process from an older doku
wiki (2006-03-09b) to the latest release using an interim version
(2008-05-05) to convert the old changelog.
The old machine was a Suse machine with apache2 and the new one is a
ubuntu 8.04 LTS with apache2.

What I did so far:
copy the old wiki to the new machine -> works without problems on the
new machine. I did a ?do=check on the start page:

OK (green):

DokuWiki version: Release 2006-03-09b
PHP version 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.6
Changelog is writable
Datadir is writable
Attic is writable
Mediadir is writable
Cachedir is writable
conf/users.auth.php is writable
mb_string extension is available and will be used
Debugging support is disabled

Info (blue):
Your current permission for this page is 255
The current page is writable by the webserver
The current page is writable by you

Because I used an outdated template in the old release I switched back
to the default template and enabled debugging to see if there are any
problems after the update.
I copied the interim release over the old version of dokuwiki and
cleared the plugin folder before to make sure there are no old plugins
not working anymore with this version which could make problems. Finaly
I changed the owner for the whole wiki folder to www-data:www-data which
is the user the apache is running on ubuntu by default.
I then opened the start page again and did a do=check to see if the
update and import of the changelog worked well:

OK (green):
DokuWiki version: Release 2008-05-05
PHP version 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.6
More than 32MB RAM (33554432 bytes) available.
Changelog is writable
Datadir is writable
Attic is writable
Mediadir is writable
Cachedir is writable
Lockdir is writable
conf/users.auth.php is writable
mb_string extension is available and will be used
Debugging support is disabled

Info (blue):
Old changelog exists

Warning (red)
Importing old changelog failed

As you can see the old changelog was not imported properly.

I had a look at the plugin section in the admin menu an the
"importoldindex" plugin is unchecked so this part of the import seems to
be ok. The "importoldchangelog" is still checked. Like it is stated here
http://www.dokuwiki.org/devel:changelog I had a look in my apache error
log but could not find anything.

Did I make any mistakes during the update process? Is there anywhere to
look for why the import did fail?

Thanks for help

Andreas
