LR 3.4.1, Win7 64-Bit:
Publish to Hard Drive in Format "Original" no longer creates XMP sidecar files along with the published originals.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create new Catalog

  • Automatically write Changes into XMP not checked

  • Import some .cr2 files

  • Export .cr2 images in format "Original" to an export folder

  • Create Published Collection, using format "Original" to a publish folder

  • Drag a couple of images into the Published Collection

  • Publish the collection

Actual Result:

  • Images exported as originals show up with .cr2 and XMP sidecar files in export folder

  • Images published as originals show up with only .cr2 files (no XMP sidecar files) in published folder

Expected Result:

  • Images published as originals should show up with .cr2 and XMP sidecar files in published folder

The same procedure in LR 3.3 produces Raw and XMP files in both export and published folders.

As I don't have LR 3.4 installed anymore, I cannot try with LR 3.4, but maybe somebody who still has it installed can.
