Short description of error
Don't know if it's a bug or a feature. When you do a full copy you expect it to be a full copy, but particle settings rather stay linked.
And what's more, it should assign the copy of an instantiated object from the new scene. Well, I suppose it should work like that at least.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open the file.
Do Full Copy.
Particle settings stay linked.

Not 100% sure this is by design, but would also expect this to get duplicated along...
(BKE_object_copy_particlesystems is actually called though, seems like ParticleSettings are not duplicated with this?)

And what's more, it should assign the copy of an instantiated object from the new scene.

Would also agree on instance_object ideally being remapped, might be a feature request though (this might not be copied after all since it could be from some other scene).

Bastien Montagne (mont29) moved this task from Backlog to TODO's on the Pipeline, Assets & I/O board.

This is a TODO really, code is working as expected currently.

Think this full scene copy operation needs to be fully rewritten to use modern code and tools, and it should also use the same settings (in user preferences) as object copying itself, to decide which of its sub-data IDs it should duplicate alongside...
