thanks for those reports. The SQL import has been neglected for a  
while, I will try my best next week.
Regarding memory your macbook with 2gb should be more than fine. All  
tomcats I have used so far were configured to use no more than 1gb.  
Did you increase tomcats default memory size? It is very little by  
default, so increasing to 1gb is sometimes needed. If you run jetty  
via maven you can do the following to allow java to use up to 1gb of  

export MAVEN_OPTS='-Xmx1024m'

for tomcat edit the catalina.sh and add:
JAVA_OPTS="-Xms512M -Xmx1024M"

I have just finished implementing file upload for zip archives. So for  
those of you using the subversion trunk version locally you should be  
able to upload 100MB of zipped data.
And thanks to Javi there are also much nicer maps now instead of  
openlayers... more soon.
