Imported Flow from another tenant does not convert connections


When I import a Flow from another tenant (Update action), dialog asks me to specify the Flow to update and provide a SharePoint connection. Then I click 'Import'.

What it did in the past: the Flow would import correctly and I just had to correct the first step (update the site Url and specify the targeted list). The new connection would replace all connections of the exported flow.

What it does now: it says the importation failed and suggest to save it as a new flow. And when I do so, I have to correct all the steps that use a connection and specify, for each of them, the connection I specified during Import. 

As a temporary workaround it's okay to do so but the problem is that my new Flow does not have the same ID which is a problem when it's used in a JSON formatted column that displays a button to start the Flow. Also, having to correct all steps with a connection can be quite long, depending on the number of steps that use connections.

Any chance this will get corrected any time soon ?
