ctrlSetStructuredText updates provided Structured Text instance
Assigned, NormalPublic

Description

Using ctrlSetStructuredText on with structured text *edits* this structured text object.
For example on a RscStructuredText control:

private _text = "abcd";
private _parsedText = parseText _text;
_myControl ctrlSetStructuredText _parsedText;    // will change _parsedText value
_myControl ctrlSetStructuredText parseText _text // circumvents the issue

Thanks to @Dscha for finding it out.

Additional Info:
This happens to custom prefabs of RscStructuredText classes (doesn't matter if the defined is in a Mission (description.ext) or inside a .pbo (config.cpp))

class my_RscStructuredText: RscStructuredText
{
	idc = -1;
	class Attributes
	{
		align = "center";
		color = "#00FFFF";
		colorLink = "#D09B43";
		font = "RobotoCondensed";
		size = 0.04;
		shadow = 0;
	};
};

ctrlSetStructuredText probably modifies parsedText param by ref.
