[ic] Problems with component cloning and creation

I've started to create my own components, but first tried to customize 
some of the components already available in the dist. The problem is 
that the function:

UI -> Content -> Component edit -> Existing components
and on the Component Edit screen
New name + click on Publish
doesn't seem to work.

It simply seems to republish the component used as a blueprint. Is this 
correct as for now?
I have 5.2.0 installed from source (no RPM) on a Red Had 9 system.

Beside this, when I try to create a new control and miss to specify the 
value for Identifier I get a somewhat cryptic message:

content_modify: op add failed for component xxxxxx

It would be nice to have the actual dependency being stated, like:

Field xxxxx is mandatory. Please fill it out.

I have some trouble with "Lookup table" and "Lookup select", too. When I 
fill out these two, the system automatically fills "Field for lookup" 
with the value from "Lookup select" out, too. ???

Thanks for any hints.
