I have put v1.2 of the importer here http://www.spookyhill.net/~gall/ 
latex/TeX.mdimporter.zip

Replace all other versions of TeX.mdimporter with this one.

I have told Richard Koch and if he is going to include the importer,  
he should be including v1.2.

I have tested the importer and it _seems_ to be releasing memory in  
the same way as mdimporter does when the TeX.importer is not active,  
but I do not have the tools I need to track this very well. I have  
simply used Activity Monitor and watched an mdimport of my Documents  
folder.

_Any_ feedback, positive or negative, is invited and appreciated.
