When exporting a wallet that holds a regular address (+private key) and a "watch-only" address (without private key), I might get something like this:

"keys" : [

However, I can't import this. Well I can, but it seems to ignore the watch-only address. When I remove that private key, thus only importing watch-only addresses, it says "Unknown Format Incorrect Password".

Now of course for single addresses I can re-add them manually, but I've also got wallets with 30+ watch-only addresses where this would be a nuisance.

Is there a workaround for this?

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
