Yes - I've seen this when you refer to "me" using strange syntax like that.
That's not me personally - you're welcome to refer to me in whatever syntax
you like, but the behavior. Not my behavior... anyway. There does seem to be
some downside of an English like syntax.

The behavior I get problems with is that in certain circumstances "the long
id of x" does not convert a valid reference to the "long id" when called
from within a behavior, which is surely bad behavior, for which I apologise.
