The file size seems small enough and should be handled well. It is hard for
me to say what went wrong with the import on 1.5.5 without any logs or the
XML file. The import logging has improved a bit since 1.5.5.
What does the error message say? Are there any specifics, or just a generic
failure message?

Is the previous file 4MB or 4GB big?

Could you send me an example of such a transaction? Just an XML snippet
from the unzipped .gnucash file.

I would be very interested to know if the import succeeds in the new build
which I just released.
Please keep me posted. Thank you for all the feedback!
