Shape key value driver variables of duplicated object sets refer to old objects

Short description of error
Normally, when duplicating an object set, relative reference structure between selected objects to be copied is usually preserved. That is - if a pair of objects, one of them having a variable used by other's driver, modifier etc. is duplicated, a new copy points to a variable in a new paired object (duplication of a character or anything having a rig). That seems not to be the case for the drivers of shape key values. A new object still points to original instead of new respective object.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Duplicate the selection (empty and a cube)
  • Select and move the old empty in Z.
  • The effect is on respective object's translation, but on shape keys of both objects.
