yes; i could verify this, maybe fill a bug report about this:

but be aware the action CopyPage is a bit dangerous well... " has
questionable behaviour regarding subpages a user can't read, but can
copy" so I would not use this feature at the moment!

also some notes:
 * if you change something then you will not get any notification
 * and be sure that you subscribe with a regex to a subpages (e.g.: .*
)... because if you copy - say page FOO to BAR and you subscribed only
to FOO then you will never get any message about the new page BAR. but
sure with regex it should work (like it works with creating new pages)...

Version 1.8.1 and soon 1.8.2. is the current version, so you maybe
should update or check atleast the security stuff under
