|Copy&paste of library items in the designer does not preserve the library dependency [message #870454]

I have the following issue.
My rptdesign is using an external rptlibrary in which I define some basic formatting for charts.
When I drag and drop a library item into the design and make some customization, everything is ok: the link to the original library item is defined.
That is, in the xml source I have the attribute: extends="mylib.myitem".
So, changes to the library item will correctly reflect on the item instance inside the design.
Let's call item_X the item instance inside the report.
When I try to copy and paste item_X to have item_Y, I find out that item_Y is NOT linked to the library.
Of course as a woraround I can go inside the XML source and add the missing attribute: extends="mylib.myitem"
But I would exepect BIRT to preserve this information during the copy/paste operation.
Is it a bug related only to my version (Eclipse BIRT Designer Version 2.3.2.r232_20090202)?
Is there another way of "smart" copying items which preserves this library dependency, without changing the xml manually?
