[EP-tech] Importing records by XML still defective with --update?


I recently updated to EPrints version 3.3.10 hoping that the issue with 
the disrespected --update parameter will be solved, so all supplied 
metadata is processed, first and foremost eprintid. Hurray, that one 
works indeed, and also documents and subjects, but not the rest. Did I 
miss something?

My command is: bin/import heidok --enable-file-imports 
--enable-web-imports --user opus --update --enable-import-fields 
--verbose eprint XML /tmp/opus_10544.xml

Attached to this post:
  * opus_10544.xml: Export XML generated by a custom script in the 
domain of our present repository software to be migrated
  * heidok-eprint-10544-0.xml: This data represent the record before any 
import had been tried (a totally different record as eprintid was not 
respected in 3.3.8)
  * heidok-oprint-10544-1.xml: bin/import above; only documents added 
and subjects changed!
  * heidok-eprint-10544-2.xml: Erased record prior to reimport. Results 
are as they should be

It is not so big a problem for me to have records erased before another 
bin/import run (anyway, there won't be any content-exchanging reimports 
in the productive system). I just suppose that is not intended, why else 
there would be --update at all, hence I thought that might be a bug and 
posted this :-)
