It was a file permissions problem. In expert mode I was able to see
that import.pl couldn't write to the tmp directory. It should be
mentioned in the documentation that the user running GLI needs
permissions to that directory as well as the collect directory.

Also, why didn't the error show up in other modes? It wasn't even in
the logs.
