Native Switch Button?

To add to my query below, there’s something even more strange. In my beta app there is a card with three Native Switch Buttons on it (they all have different names). i have another test card, as described before, with its own switch. When a button script on yet another card executes a ‘go' to the 3-switch card, the hiliteChanged handler in the test card fires, even though the card isn’t open! Again, the switch on this card has a different name - I read somewhere that widget names have to be unique - but this CAN’T be expected behaviour, can it? I am about to issue a bug report, but it may take too long to get a recipe.

It looks OK (a bit big on my iOS simulator, but it will do) and it works - although the insanity of spelling “highlight” two ways in the one object is apparent - but running an experiment just now in which I go to a card with such an on object on it and not much else, certainly nothing in the card script, a ‘hiliteChanged’ event is triggered even though AFAIKS the highlight (see what I did there?) hasn’t changed.
