 Blogger import fails with 404 at http://example.com/wordpress/wp-

 It seems that if the Blogger credentials have expired, the importer does
 not log in again.


 On the Import Blogger page:[[br]]
 1. Record any of your blogs that have been imported 100% so you don't
 waste your time importing again (but if you do, it should just report each
 entry is already imported) [[br]]
 2. Click 'Reset this importer' [[br]]
 3. Re-enter your blogger username and password

 Importing should again be successful.

 REPRO: always [[br]]
 STEPS: [[br]]
 1. Import one of my blogger blogs [[br]]
 2. Wait a day [[br]]
 3. Go back to the Import page (wp-admin/import.php) and click Blogger
 * Notice that I am not prompted to login and the Blogger blogs are already
 listed [[br]]
 4. Click on one of the blogs [[br]]

 URL is updated to http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/login.do -> 404


 case 0 do_login() is skipped

 case 2 backup_settings() is run until the $form is populated and
 `die($output . $form);` is execulted. This results in a login.do form
 action locally and then, of course, a 404.
