Specific card becomes due every time I import new cards from .csv

To bulk-import new notes, I juse the File > Import feature and import from a .csv file.
However, every time I do this, there is 1 specific note (which has been in my collection for ages) that suddenly becomes 'due'.
It shouldn't become due at all though, it has become a note that I know very well...

What could cause this, and how can I prevent it?

    In the card info screen, does the card have a review history, or is it a newly created card? If it does have a history, please tell me the card and attach the file you're importing along with the import options you're using, and I'll try to reproduce the issue with a copy of your AnkiWeb collection.

    It does indeed have a review history.
    This is the card info:
    Note ID 1466082371584
    Card ID 1466082394521

    I've attached an example import file, which should be imported as note type 'begrip2'.

    When importing Anki changes the due number of new cards. The card in question is improperly marked as a new card, even though it is sitting in the review queue. If you reset the card or reschedule it using the browse screen, it should fix the issue.

    Fantastic, resetting the card did the trick.
    Thanks for the help!
