It's worse than that. The problem still happens with the following test

So I can both see the text appear in the field, and then see its ID and
Then change the layers to put the group after the field, and the script
affects the other field.
I've always realized there was an issue if the two contols with the
same name were at the same level in the control hierarchy - but that is
always easily avoidable, and seems (almost) acceptable since they have
an ambiguous long name; I hadn't realized there was this issue with
differing levels in the control hierarchy. And in this case there is no
long name ambiguity, and there is also no guarantee of being (easily)
able to avoid it, since you have less visibility of control names within
"custom control" groups.
