I think that this problem should be considered to actually be fixed in an upcoming, release or cumulative update (see Article No.: 000034103).
However, the article references April 2015 which was never released and this is apparently not fixed in Q4 2015.
If this could be considered to be fixed in a future release, that would be great since this affects course copies with group discussions in them.
We have seen this problem with other group tools in course copies behaving similarly to this.
In addition, if the article could be updated to state more recent releases affected (like Q4 2015 and Q2 2016), that would be great.
