Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it's not the freshness of the information. The German nuclear lobby used this misinterpretation (viewing only French/German exchange rather than total German exports/imports) for a long time; I once diarised it here on ET, and here is a graph for 2006 export/import, where again you see French and Czehc nuke electricity transiting en route to the Netherlands and (via Switzerland and Austria) Italy:

You see, net exports even grew dramatically to almost 20 TWh -- a growth that happens to match growth in traditionally generated electricity (almost entirely gas, I wrote about this in a comment somewhere on ET).

Also check the table here, Einfuhr=imports, Ausfuhr=exports, Saldo=net (positive if net imports).
