Yep. Why are you trying to call a mouseUp handler on preOpenCard
anyway? Take the code in mouseUp, put it in its own handler, and call
it from mouseUp. Then call the same thing from preOpenCard.

-- in button script
on mouseUp
end mouseUp

on doTheStuffThatUsedToBeHere
end doTheStuffThatUsedToBeHere

-- in card script
on preOpenCard
  dispatch "stuffThatUsedToBeHere" to button "yaddayadda"
end preOpenCard
