iphoneClearTouches Issue

Hi folks,

My latest project, which should have been published a week ago, have one last problem to be solved.
Rather trying to pinpoint the problem, I’m referring to the collective wisdom because of the tight schedule.

Each card is pretty loaded with objects and it takes sometime to be opened.
Since the iPad’s enormous screen resolution, this delay becomes noticeable.
Here’s the scenario I’ve observed:
* User hits “next card button”.
* Since the next card doesn’t open instantaneously, she/he hits the same button a couple of times.
* Next card opens, but there is another button at the same location; that one gets the following touch signals.
* It goes back to card 1, this time same “next card button” gets the following touch signal and so on…

The user ends up with pages going forth and back; each time she/he hits another button gets things worse only.

I’ve put a *iphoneClearTouches* into *preOpenCard* scripts of all cards; it didn’t help.
Then, I’ve put the *iphoneClearTouches* command additionally into *closeCard* scripts of all cards; same situation.
I added it into the *touchEnd* script, still no luck.

What am I doing wrong, here?
