I'm not seeing this on Mac with LC 4.6.1. The checkbox to change the property is disabled if the group is on > 1 card, and trying to set it to false in the message box does indeed throw an error. Might you perhaps have been running a slightly older version when this happened? As I recall, this change (enforcing backgroundBehavior = true on all groups placed on > 1 card) only came into effect in 4.6.0.
