render layer light linking bug, v7

if you have a scene which references in the scene that contains your lights, and you assign those lights to a render layer from another referenced scene, say containing a character, it doesnt remember the link when you re-open the file, but it does work fine untill you close the file, including if you launch a batch render. this can be pretty confusing to debug, especially if you are dealing with very slow renders. anywys..

workaround i tried is to create a new render layer in the scene that you are referencing the other scenes into, and put everything you want into that layer. that doesnt work either. anybody got any ideas? its more an annoyance than anything as its easy enough to re assign the lights in this particular case, but if my light linkingc gets more complicated its gonna suck.
