Importing form exported catalog does not preserve duplicate file information

Lightroom does not seem to preserve duplicate file information when importing photos that were exported from another catalog.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open catalog A
2. Import new photos from card reader into catalog A
3. Export some of those photos from catalog A into catalog "A-export" using "export as catalog"
4. Open catalog B
5. Import photos from "A-export" into catalog B using "import from catalog"
6. Import photos into catalog B from same card / card reader as in step 2, making sure to check "ignore suspected duplicates"

Expected Result:
Photos already imported in step 2. should be marked as duplicates when importing from card reader into catalog B. The corresponding information should have been preserved when exporting and importing from catalog A.

Actual Result:
Photos already imported through catalog A are not marked as duplicates and reimporting would create duplicate copies in catalog B. Some of the information available about the original file names got lost when exporting and importing from catalog A.
