I ran into this issue as well and realized in order to get the desired behavior I needed to use a draggable in conjunction with a sortable. The draggable is responsible for "cloning" the item. Since you can't really sort a list if you are "cloning" the item, I understand why sortable doesn't support "cloning". In addition you need to remove the element if you are "sorting", so here i use the "isold" class to find and remove the old element. In this example sortable2 is another div that I need to be able to drag into, so this probably would not be necessary in your case. I put my code on jsFiddle:
