The bundled MIB files have now been sync:ed with libsmi (2008-04-06). Please download 2.9.alpha2 that contains the fix.

Note that the issues you experienced might be warnings caused by some issues in the IETF MIBs that are fixed in the versions bundled with Mibble:

DSA-MIB:-- FIX: added additional imports (Counter32, Gauge32)
RFC-1212:-- FIX: added additional imports (NetworkAddress, IpAddress)
RFC1231-MIB:-- FIX: added additional import (Counter)
RFC1243-MIB:-- FIX: changed 'llapInBads' to 'llapInErrors'
RFC1253-MIB:-- FIX: changed index from ospfAreaID to ospfAreaId
RFC1253-MIB:-- FIX: changed 'ospfLSACount' to 'ospfAreaLSACount'
RFC1271-MIB:-- FIX: added additional import (TimeTicks)
RFC1315-MIB:-- FIX: added additional import (Counter)

First of all, thanks for the tool - I find it very useful for manipulating IETF Mibs. The source was very helpful to understand the API.
As some of you might know, the Libsmi distribution provide an up-to-date list of MIBs published through IETF RFCs and maintained by the IANA. 41 files are added to the ones provided in the Mibble distribution (only from IETF). However, I have encountered problems loading 13 of these MIBs. The MIB Loader only indicate the number of errors in the 'faulty' file;
Since I am not an expert in SMIv2, I cannot figure out what are the errors. Not sure if the files are not compliant with the language or if Mibble API is not taking into account some language constructs?
That would be nice to include support for these MIBs in future Mibble distribution - as some can be very interesting for many of us (e.g. MOBILEIPV6, ADSL2, etc.)
The whole set of files can be obtained here: ftp://ftp.ibr.cs.tu-bs.de/pub/local/libsmi/WIN32/libsmi-0.4.5-r6541.zip
Below, the list of files.
