Document meta-data is not saved to file when using "Save As PSD" with default settings.

Steps to reproduce:

Create a PSD
Add meta data to document
Click File -> Save As
Save as a different psd
Close the newly created psd
Open the newly created psd... meta-data is missing.

Workaround:
Add meta data to document
Click File -> Save As
Save as a different psd
Make any change (layer movement or something).
Click File -> Save
Close the newly created psd
Open the newly created psd... meta-data is there.

When using Save As it should transfer all layers and document meta data to the new file automatically, I shouldn't have to save it again.

Hi David,

What version of Photoshop are you using? What OS/version are you running on?
