strange nested groups behaviour

well, I just found the explanation. "the owner of me" returns
"group date" (for instance), and since each of my groups "search"
contains the same kind of objects with the same names, Rev
checks some lookup table for a group "date" and the first one it finds
is group "date" in group "search1"...

I've been deeply into xml lately and I thought that "the owner of me"
would return some kind of unique object identifier... next time I'll
think twice before coding blindly...
