They don't??? :-O

Living and learning... I always though it would travel to whoever had it.

Object -> Groups -> Card -> Stack

So that if any guy on that progression implemented a preOpenCard handler, it
would trigger or passes to the guy on the right side...

I *think* did this before... maybe I am just plain wrong, can't trust my
brain with all the vuvuzelas sounding (gosh, did you know there are vuvuzela
iPhone Apps?)

Well, for the time being, I am now using a handler "setup" where I
initialize all the damn controls that had a preOpenCard... Not my ideal
solution but as long as it works.
