Summary0027806: Saving: Duplicating an object in the resource tree sometimes fails to duplicate its events also
DescriptionWhile working on a tutorial project I had to make a number of "button" objects, and so made one with some generic code then used the RMB menu option in the resource tree to duplicate it to create new buttons. However, I found that sometimes (about once every four duplicates) I'd open an event in the newly duplicated object and it'd be empty.
Steps To ReproduceCreate an object and add some code to the create event
Duplicate the object and then open it and open the create event
Note that it should have code
Now duplicate the duplicated object again
Open the create event and see it may or may not have code...
Repeat, duplicating the last duplicated object and checking the Create Event

I have supplied the project that I was working on when this happened as well as the last few UI log files in case it's of any use. In the test project, simply make duplicates of any button object and keep duplicating.

not getting this at all after a few hundred duplicates, on current dev and latest green (; tested using synced DropBox folder for project save location as mark was doing, as well as local documents folder

On now and haven't had the issue again. :( Can probably close this...

We strongly believe this is a dupe of the core issue in 0029390 and that duplicating the resource is simply another route to having unsaved code with a name change pending, rather than being integral to reproduction.
