There is a subtle change in the way .csv files are imported at 6.02. It
created a temporary show stopper for one of my clients.
Put the following into a .csv file:
At 6.01 (and earlier versions of Mathematica) the string was read in as
"hope". At 6.02 the quotes are included in the string - "\"hope\"".
I suspect this counts as a bug fix, since it is more consistent, but beware!
