11.2 MU2: Registry Import/Export changes content

Importing a Reg-File into an Registry Edit action of a bundle and then exporting this I'll get a moved Registry-Key.

Example:
======== Reg File Imported ========
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\bwbapps\Adobe]
"Version"="1"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\bwbapps\Adobe\DN]
"InstallDate"="%DAY%.%MONTH%.%YEAR%"
==============================

I'll get this when exporting it:
...
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\bwbapps\Adobe\DN]
"InstallDate"="%DAY%.%MONTH%.%YEAR%"
"Version"="1"


("Version" has moved.)

Tessnow,

do you know if this worked for you before MU2?

In a clean SP2 setup, the export is the same.

Niels,

I have created Bug 767028 for this: if you and Frank want to open a SR
and quote that bug, that's the quickest way to get attention...

FYI... I also see this. I can check it in my pre MU2 setup, if you like?

Shaun, can we get this test scenario/use case added to the testing scripts (that hopefully Novell uses)? Just so things like this don't happen in the future? (Just asking, no shooting the messenger).

Kjhurni,

with all bugs, engineering look to see why it happened, and how it
could have been caught - this one was marked as "test case not run",
meaning that they should have tested it! So it will automatically be
included in the test cases for future updates

Thanks Shaun! So when a bug is entered in the bugzilla, it will hopefully get flagged appropriately.
