Steps to reproduce

1. Create a content page with master language “English" and a “Finnish” language branch.
2. Export that page using the Admin/Export Data functionality.
3. Update both the English and Finnish language versions and publish them.
4. Import the file exported in step 2. Make sure that “Update existing content items with matching ID” is checked.

The import should not replace the updated content pages. Both master and language branches should behave in the same way.

The Finnish version is always overwritten with the version from the imported file. However, this does not happen with the English master branch if the content was updated after it was exported.
