The bug relates to
  1. Datafile added after the backup
  2. Duplicate done to a point after the addition of a datafile
  3. Usage of db_create_file_dest

There would have been many DUPLICATE DATABASEs done in the past 2 years. But few with the combination noted above.

The bug was opened on december 2011 and they started working on fix on Nov 2013, 2 years later! So it does not seem a very critical bug to development! During these 2 years guess noone in the world duplicates the database to same server using ASM! :-)
