[TYPO3-core] Conceptional problem with inline records?

Hi guys,

I'm not sure but I think I found a conceptional problem with inline 
records that are stored in the same page as their parents.

I found this by researching the cause of:
http://forge.typo3.org/issues/44795 and

Lets assume we have a page with a tt_content element that uses a 
sys_file_reference. We now copy that page. This is what happens:

DataHandler->copySpecificPage() loops over all configured tables and 
copies the records in that page.

If sys_file_reference appears first in the tables array (which seems to 
be the case currently) the sys_file_reference record is copied (a new 
record with identical data but a different PID appears in the 
sys_file_reference table). The records still points to the content 
element in the old page though.

Now the tt_content element is copied which has a reference to an inline 
sys_file_reference record. This is done by 
copyRecord_procBasedOnFieldType() which finally calls copyRecord_raw(). 
In this method it is checked, if the record is already copied by calling 
isRecordCopied(). Since the record WAS already copied further processing 
is skipped.

Has anyone a good idea how to solve this? Maybe in copyRecord_raw() 
override the data of the related record isRecordCopied() returns TRUE?

I wish you all a merry Christmas :)
