It is both.  IE changed (probably extended with new features) its bookmark
format, and there is a bug that prevents directories from being correctly
nested in the output xml.

After I fixed the code, I was able to turn my collection of IE favorites
into nearly 1000 bookmarks into XBEL format, and from there using a
stylesheet I created an XTM topic map from them.
