How to clone a group use lua?

I tried something.

1.gre.clone_object("group","groupclone","layer",{x = 100, y = 10})
got an warn message. (WARN [4.718]:Unable to find reference group to clone)

2.gre.clone_object("","groupclone","layer",{x = 100, y = 10})
It looks like everything is fine, but when you have a table control under the group, you can't clone it successfully, the sbengine crashes.

Hi Zero147,

In Storyboard 5.2 and under, we are unable to clone table objects, so cloning a group with a table in it will not work.

This was one of the issues we've addressed in our upcoming version of Storyboard. Hopefully you get a chance to check it out!
