Huh? I am simply doing a select all in the window and dragging over to another window. Shouldnt I get the same tree in the destination? Mac Finder works that way.

    Well, Path Finder's way makes more sense to me. I think Finder prevents copying duplicates because Finder is for beginner users, not for advanced users.

    You don't need to do a select all, just select the folder you want to copy and it will copy it and everything inside it.

    This is not new behaviour, the same happened in version 5. This was a design decision, because people asked for it, so it's different behaviour that in Finder on purpose. We may introduce a preference setting to choose between two behaviours.
