About me... (a bug)

This bug effects text fields only not other properties of objects as far as
I can tell. So the following work in all cases:

getprop view_Label
    return the effective label of me
end view_Label

setprop view_Label someValue
   set the label of me to someValue
end view_Label

But the following fail if the properties are not set from the card
containing the field:

getprop view_Text
   return the text of me
end view_Text

setprop view_Text someValue
   set the text of me to someValue
end view_Text

This can be fixed by using:

getprop view_Text
    put the long id of me into someField
    return the text of someField
end view_Text

setprop view_Text someValue
    put the long id of me into someField
    set the text of someField to someValue
end view_Text
