Short description of error
The flags (enabled/disabled, visible, holdout, etc.) of linked-in nested collections aren't always saved. It looks like they're all determined by the top collection.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Unpack
  2. Open collection_demo.blend
  3. In the outliner, disable "Subcollection 2". This hides the "Disable my collection" text.
  4. Save & reload the blend file.
  5. See that "Subcollection 2" is now re-enabled.

Another example of the same problem:

  1. Open collection_demo.blend
  2. In the outliner, disable "Top collection" and re-enable "Subcollection 1". This shows Suzanne.
  3. Save & reload the blend file.
  4. See that "Subcollection 1" is now disabled again.

In both cases the enabled/disabled state of the nested collection is determined by the top collection.
