    Is it possible to find out from which wallet a privateSend-request came from and which new addresses in the same wallet received the privatised Coins?

    In theory it should be possible to perform a dusting attack to each privateSend round inputs and outputs.

    If the Dash wallet combines the dust from input and output of privateSend transactions the puzzle is solved and I know which addresses belong to which wallets.
    Even if the two out of three wallets combine the dust, so I know which addresses belong to the third wallet - even if the third wallet did not spend any privatised coins.

    Or is it the case that the Dash wallet and Dash core ignore any dust to avoid successful dusting attacks?

    Or at least Dash wallet and Dash core never combines "public" outputs and "private" outputs to new transactions as inputs?
