hi, looking at the code here and doing a simple test on a cube duplicated in edit mode to create the doubles, export then import gives the result you describe above. The mesh is triangulated and the doubles removed (on re import i think) not checked in external program. There's some settings in the addon to work with. I think it's working as expected and doubles are not a good thing to try to import/export in any circumstance.
closing as invalid.
