After duplicating a group with a live shape in it, you cannot access the shape properties.

To reproduce:

1. Create a rectangle shape and set the border radius to 10
2. Put the shape in a layer group
3. Duplicate the layer group
4. Click the newly-created shape within the layer group copy
5. Notice that you cannot access the border radius or other properties of the shape
6. If you select the duplicated shape and duplicate it again (the shape this time, not the layer group), the properties are now available on the 3rd copy of the shape.

So, it seems to be that there's something buggy with live shapes whose layer groups are duplicated. The properties panel stops working for attributes like their color, border, border radius, etc.
