I'm not seeing that. I see the field getting the message first, even if 
the field is in a background group.

I made a new stack with a single field. The field has this script:

on keydown which
   get msg
   put " FIELD" after it
   put it
   pass keydown
end keydown

And the card has this script:

on keydown which
   get msg
   put " CARD" after it
   put it
   pass keydown
end keydown


The message box shows " FIELD CARD". I also tried grouping the field and 
setting backgroundbehavior to true with the same results.
