      Description

      We are getting a strange error where calendar events that are set up in a course as "Course Events" are duplicated and linked when we backup and restore that course.

      1. Add a "Course" calendar events that repeat weekly for a total of 8 instances
      2. Backup and restore that course into a new shell...
      3. Navigate to the Calendar event in the new course and edit the event...
      4. Click on the repeated events and you should see that this is event is linked to more than the 8 events it was created with... The date and time of that 1 event is now tied to 15 other events - a total of 15 events...
      5. Restore another section from your original backup and check the same thing and it will now be 23 other events... tying them all together...
      6. Change the time of one event and it applies it across three courses.

      Expected Results... backup and restore of a course should create separate instances of the Calendar event and not tie them between courses... so that changes in one event on one course will not affect other courses that are tied to those events......
