Sidechain input on Ableton compressor doesn't follow when you Copy/Paste?

When I try to copy/paste a compressor with sidechain engaged and an input selected (to "kick" for example), the parameters are there on the pasted track, but the input is set to "none".

I have to re-select the sidechain input every time I paste a new sidechain compressor. Does anyone know how to work around this?

    Just tried it myself on Live 9. I put a compressor on a track, set sidechain input. Then right click and copy the compressor, go to a different track and paste it. Routing is still there, including sidechain input. So I'm not sure what you are doing differently, but it works fine here.
