Possible bug in 'load config partial' command



Yesterday I was setting up a new PA-220. As always I cloned template and used load config partial command to clone device-group:


load config partial mode replace from-xpath /config/devices/entry[@name='localhost.localdomain']/device-group/entry[@name='SRC'] to-xpath /config/devices/entry[@name='localhost.localdomain']/device-group/entry[@name='DST']  from running-config.xml


When I tried to commit I got information that DG named SRC is duplicated. It seems command now ignore to-xpath DG name. That was confirmed when looking into config XML. 


I ended up with extracting XML config, duplicating DG, changing name, importing and loading. I do not know why we have clone button in templates and not in device groups.
