[Koha] MARC record Importing problems with Academic Staff Demo

we are trying pre-evaluation of Koha functionalities by doing some
tests with the LibLime demo installation at http://academic-
and find that even though "Stage MARC records for Import" works
fine, the next step "Manage Staged MARC records" consistently fails
this message getting displayed "There are no records in this batch to
import" and that's it: no further hints why.
Even records imported by someone a longer time ago [like batch
number 33 ( http://academic-staff.demo.kohalibrary.com/cgi-bin/koha/
tools/manage-marc-import.pl?offset=50 )] and after exporting back to
to MARC again, now fail to import with this same error message.
Anybody an idea what's going on ? The demo server idea is
problematic of-course with any global settings that people are
changing all the time but wouldn't the Import at least always import
any 2709 MARC record(s) ?
If there would be any demands on the MARC records - like Koha cannot
import MARC holdings records or cannot import anything MARC related
to serials information but only imports biblio records - where can we
find the authoritative KOHA documentation on this ?
The excellent Koha 3 Manual Site does not cover this aspect at any
length and searching the mailing lists and other sources only gives
bits and pieces or info / instructions that could be outdated.
Even if the advice is: "install your own Koha for testing" - any help
