Bug? ResizeControl Triggers From Outside of CustomControl with Assigned Behavior

I saw this recently. It isn't a bug, the navigation group is a background 
group so it will catch any message that isn't blocked earlier in the 
message path. You can put an empty resizecontrol handler in objects that 
shouldn't respond, or check in the group script that the target is one of 
the group members, as you did.
