in core.ref.tex, patch:

\def\setouterlocation#1%
   {\ifundefined{\v!file:::#1}%
      \ifconditional\forceURLlocation
        \edef\otherURL{#1}%
        \let\otherfile\empty
      \else
        \let\otherURL\empty
        \edef\otherfile{#1}%
      \fi
    \else
      \let\doexternaldocument\setouterfilelocation
      \let\doexternalurl     \setouterfilelocation % <<< missing line
      \csname\v!file:::#1\endcsname
    \fi
    \setfalse\forceURLlocation
    \doifparentfileelse\otherfile
      {\let\otherURL\empty
       \let\otherfile\empty
       \global\let\otherlabel\empty
       \let\otherprefix\empty}
      {\xdef\otherlabel{#1}%
       \edef\otherprefix{#1::}}}

I need to rewrite this piece of code, currently there is some nasty overloading 
taking place (in order to safe hash entries i pack several things into one 
macro, which is used nested and which meaning gets overloaded)
