The "Act like background" does not place (<--jargon) the group on all  
cards.  It puts the group behind the card in the message path for  
most messages and it places itself on new cards created when it is on  
the current card.  More than one group on a card can have  
backgroundBehavior set.

See backgroundBehavior in the dictionary.  See section 4.2.25 in the  
User Guide for a practical view of the term "background".

If there are aspects to being a background that you don't want, then  
the group can be pasted to each card.

Maybe it would be handy to have an option in the Object menu to place  
a group on all cards.
