The functionality of an export was changed for linked repository objects with the option "Specify by reference". In this case, the exported objects get replaced by "Specify by name" and the resolved path. This ensures a correct import to a different repository. To be compatible with the behavior to previous versions, set variable KETTLE_EXPORT_COMPATIBILITY_KEEP_REFERENCE to Y.
