Did you fix the bug with @import statements including a url construct 
containing a single quoted (maybe double quoted as well for all I know) 
string? 

e.g.

@import url( './modules/CSS/web.css' );

(if the next part breaks, it is a single line from an Apache access log)

XX.XXX.XXX.XX - - [07/Nov/2001:07:14:10 -0800] "GET /resume/val/'.
/modules/CSS/web.css' HTTP/1.1" 404 240 "http://www.jmmcc.
com/resume/val/resume.php?version=web" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; 
Mac_PowerPC)" PID4391
