I had tried only the short one. I just tried your long script on the  
same stack (I just added " if whichKey is "up" then go to card 1" as a  
first line, for fun ;-)) but might be useful anyway!

I  assume that your are expecting one is "circling" in the same  
background when, being on the first card of a bg, one presses the left  
arrowkey (or the  right arrowkey when being on the last card of the  
bg). If this is the case, then no problem; your script works well in a  
stack created in rev.
