Strange copy n paste in 4.10

Hi,

Yesterday I decided to give 4.10 a spin from 4.9.3 and it behaved strange.

When I copied a rather complex set of objects to a new view it seems like it made a copy but without rename (no (copy)). I am totally positive I used paste special (ctrl shift v).

When I later in the first view relied on new relations created in the second view they where not there and I had to start clean the model.

Sadly I never went into debug mode at the time. Hope I can next time (if ever).

During the time I had those circumstances:
* Many variants of the same model open at the same time (making updates from review meetings) (same UUID will occur many times in total but in different models).
* The main model is GIT enabled
* I make use of concept specializations but not images
* The base object I copied was a specialized Grouping with content
* I did copy within the same model though, that is a mistake I keep a close eye on
* I run Linix with KDE.

Anyone seen something similar?

I think it is still to vague for a real ticket, but that will come if I can reproduce or document some facts.

You must have copied from one model but pasted to another one. In such case paste special behaves like a normal past which creates new concept (because working in a different model) but without the (copy) suffix.

Note: 4.10 doesn't change anything on the copy/past behavior.
