It's a group that does not have backgroundBehavior set. It gets messages 
before the card does, like buttons and other card objects. If a script 
somewhere after the card needs to trigger a message in a card group, 
then it has to "send" the message, just as it would send to a card 
button. That's why it sounded to me like your group was a card group; if 
it were a background group it would behave the way you were used to.
