Which one?

I found this one in a message from you earlier today:
    --            button id 1003 of card id 1002 of stack "stack 2"
    --            of stack "/Users/t/Desktop/stack.livecode"

When I pass that to the function shown above I get:

   stack "stack 2" of stack "/Users/t/Desktop/stack.livecode"

What did you get?

Or was there another object long ID in this thread I'd missed?
