Actually, that's not what I meant.  Using the long name or ID provides a
"full" path to an object (including the card the object sits on, group its
in, etc).  I haven't used your notation above but using a "simple" object
reference (that excludes the card reference for example) may be what causes
the engine barf and lose track of things.  Again, YMMV, but using long
ID/name appear to be "safer".
