Have you tried setting keepReferencesOnCopy=1 on the field which
references the sub-event?
There is a chance that it will work since moving an object from a temp
dir to its final location leads to a manage_afterAdd. See
I believe it will work since objects in portal_factory are catalogued.
(They are removed later - can't remember how). This means there is a
window of opportunity for the references to be maintained.
