How do I copy a mask's motion path and paste it onto another mask?

I've Googled and Googled, but the only thing I come up with is how to copy a mask and make it a shape, and vice versa.
No, Google! I want my two masks to have the exact same path.
I've tried selecting all of the motion/path keyframes and pasting them to the other mask, but it turns out wonky and flips the motion horizontally AND screws up the timing! What in the holy heck am I doing wrong??

I think a little clarification is necessary. When you say "I want my masks to have the same path" I ask WHICH path: the Mask Path or the Motion Path?

Big difference, y'know....

Hi Jami, as Dave says your question is hard to understand. Is this any help?
