Groups and backgrounds

Still trying to extend my "best practice" usage of the message path...
I tend to put most of my scripts at the group level, rather than the
object level. On some of these groups I select "background behavior" in
the property inspector. I had understood that this would put the group
in the message path between the card and the stack... but it doesn't
seem to behave like that.
If my group has a method... er, handler called "groupAction" and the
group is "background behavior TRUE" then I had thought that *any*
object on the card could do like -
But this generally results in "background not found" errors, until an
explicit path is put in, and the method call is converted to a send.
send "groupAction" to group "bkgTest"
Why would that be? What am I missing?
