unexpected behavior 'on mouseup'

Do four simple steps:

[1] Make a new mainstack
[2] set the card script to

on mouseUp
   put the long id of the target && the seconds
end mouseUp

[3] Make a new button
[4] Choose Browse mode
Why does the card script run when clicking the button that contains the

on mouseUp

end mouseUp

It is as if the button has 'pass mouseUp' implied.
Now add any character to the button script, such as a space, click apply,
and no message is passed (but the script is the same)

Not a show-stopper, but fooled me when using a transparent button to block
mouse clicks.  Perhaps this is already bugzilla'd, or is expected behavior.
