Short description of error

After coping an object having a Mesh_Cache modifier, the message of "Copy to z-buffer" shows, when you paste the object to other scene or file the path into the Mesh_Modifier changes adding some "../" at the beggining of the original file, making the object lost the Cache.

I had include a Zip file whith a screencapture and the files used to reproduce the issue.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

  • Create a new blend file
  • Animate an object
  • Select the object
  • Export animation as MDD
  • Create other new file with the same (new) object than previous file
  • Add the mesh_cache modifier and link to the exported cache
  • Save the file, just to be sure all will be at the same path
  • Create a new empty Blend file and save it
  • Copy the object with the mesh_cache modifier from the previous saved file to the empty file
  • Go to modifier section of the object and you will find it losses the correct path to the cache, although the directory structure is at the same levels
