Import-SPWeb Error: Attempted to use an object that has ceased to exist.

While I'm trying to import a list I get this error:

I get this kind of error for every list or web I try to import.

[21/09/2012 15:20:29] [ListItem] [34243] Progress: Importing

Some help?

Hi Vandeput,

Based on the error, It seems like there is an associated list that has been deleted and that causes the import to fail.

Did you have checked the following thread?

And check this hotfix also,

I installed the CU June 2012, so the hotfix is already in place, but still the same problem.
I also copied the ContentDB to an other environment and there it works fine.

Still didn't find a solution...

Kind Regards
