Answering my own question here:
At least for me, Dolby Surround is not
intact after copying an LD PCM 2.0 track via digital coax and then resampling to 48khz (using Soundforge 6). I got full surround when playing the original LD with Dolby Prologic IIx, but nothing out of the center or surrounds when playing the copied track.
edit: this turned out to be a problem with the firmware of my playback device (the Popcorn Hour A-200) which caused LPCM/FLAC 2.0 tracks in mkv files and ts files to be output as 7.1 with all channels other than L/R silent, rendering my amp unable to properly apply Prologic decoding. So 48kHz PCM from LDs should still have the Prologic information unless there's some other problem I haven't noticed.
