[Koha] Items not added when importing MARC

I was wondering if anyone could explain the lack of items situation that occurs when I import MARC records using the web interface (MARC import staging, followed by MARC import managing).  I have imported the records and the bib records are fine except that as far as I can tell, I have to go through each bib record individually and add an item to that record.  This is not possible for every single MARC record (in the end there will be around 10,000).  When preparing records for import using the web interface, one of the parameters is "Check for embedded item record data?" where I marked "YES" and then set the drop down menu to "always add items".  So, why aren't items added?  My MARC structure is fine, I thought I correctly finagled the 952 subfields, with full call numbers in the 952 $o, etc.  I am running Koha v.3.0

Please let me know if you have any advice.  Obviously I am still trying to use the web interface, rather than bulkmarcimport.pl command utility.  This is because there is documentation for the web interface tools but not for the command utility...
