Request type with reference to workflow import error

I am trying to import request type with a circular reference to workflow according to System Admin guide using steps:
1. Import request type
2. Import workflow
3. Import request type again

When importing request type and workflow in one package (in separate lines), there are no errors and both are imported successfully. When trying to import these objects in separate packages, I got error (attached below) in step 1 while importing request type for the first time. When continuing steps 2-3, import seem to be successful an both PPM objects are imported.
Is this error normal situation?
Is it advised to import request type and workflow with references in 1 package?

Thanks for your help
