Sending mouseUp

Yep, that's my experience too.  Don't remember all the combinations I tried
but here's the one that really surprised.

1. Ran LC and opened my stack from within it.  Got the mouseUp problem.
2. Closed the stack and opened it again from within LC.  All worked OK.
3. Closed the stack and removed it from memory then opened it from within
LC.  All worked OK!

Step 3 is what really surprised me, I thought that should have had the same
result as step 1.

It's as if preOpenCard doesn't quite work right the very first time it is
executed in any stack in a run of LC, but ever after it's OK.
