    I'm using the Mac wallet v1.3.0.0. I decided to test importing my private key while fully synced (another wallet address with nothing in it). I was expecting my balance to show right away as the chain was fully synced, but nothing happened. I restarted the app a few times with no luck.

    Restoring with wallet.dat worked. I also tried restoring with the privkey again, but from a fresh install (complete resync). This worked.

    Just posting for reference if anyone else comes across this issue.

    Re-sync the blockchain, with a new wallet.dat, where you imported private key.
