In HC, menus were not part of the card, so that was not an issue. In 
MC/Rev/LC, menus are implemented as a group of buttons, and as such, 
that group is on a card being copied, whence it, the group, is copied 
with the card. This is what Jacque meant. It may be confusing, 
particularly if the destination stack has its own menu group, but it 
is expected behavior.

As it was suggested, you just need to manually delete the menu group 
that was carried over and replace it with the one in the destination 
stack. Only you know what is correct. If you do the transfer by 
script, you can also script the deletion and placing of the correct 
menu group.
