      1) Create one 1.9 site with 2 courses, A and B
      2) In course B create one resource (web page), with 2 links, one pointing to course A main page and another pointing to course B main page.
      3) Backup course B
      4) Restore the backup into new course (let's call it C).
      5) TEST: The original link to course A is unmodified and continues pointing to course A.
      6) TEST: The original link to course B has been modified and now points to course C.

    Description

      Affect version: Moodle 1.9.13+ (Build: 20110928)

      To reproduce:
      1. create a Moodle course "A"
      2. create a couple of meta courses "M1" and "M2" and enroll course "A" in the two meta courses
      3. now in course "A", add two resources "Link to file or web site", pointing to the Moodle URLs of the two courses "M1" and "M2". (for example, http://www.yourdomain.tld/course/view.php?id=XX)
      4. verify you can access the correct link (ak, course M1 and M2) using the resources
      5. now backup and restore the course "A" in a new course "B", in the same site.
      6. in the newly created course "B", check the resources pointing to the course M1 and M2: resource links are now broken and points to the home page of course "B".
