Yep. If you want a single group with background behavior as you  
describe, you'll have to place it, not copy and paste.

I've seen this from time to time, but it's random as far as I can  
tell. I can't reproduce it reliably. In fact, it's pretty rare. When  
I have seen it, I've usually closed down Rev and relaunched it and  
the problem has vanished.
