I'm seeing this in build 9001.

I have a scene behavior that was copied from another behavior. Let's call them Behavior A and Behavior B. 

I have an actor that needs to call a custom block in Behavior A or in Behavior B, depending in which one is used in the scene.

It seems like only the block in Behavior A is accessible. Something gets seriously messed up when scene behaviors are duplicated.

The attached game has a scene behavior (Behavior A) that had a custom block when it was duplicated as Behavior B. Behavior B's custom block and Behavior B itself don't show up in the palette when editing an actor behavior, for example.

Trying to work around this by inserting code like:

sayToScene("Behavior B", "_customBlock_CustomBlockA");

Into the actor's behavior does seem to work, but you have to admit that this is not right.

So the scope of the issue is limited to how custom blocks are handled, right?

I have a scene behavior for my game that holds all my global custom blocks.  I shared two of those on the forum by copying the first behavior and deleting the blocks I didn't need to share.  Today I just found out that the same blocks I deleted in the second behavior have also been deleted in the first.

Last night I ran into the issue where when you duplicate a behavior and delete the custom blocks in the new duplicate behavior, they're deleted in both behaviors.

I think fixing this bug should be a priority.
