Player Object problem

The Player object is a little finicky because it is Quicktime that is
managing it (for the most part), not Rev. I have found that if you use
"send" to allow the current handler to finish, you get better results.
You've done this yourself with a button and a mouseUp handler, but you could
do the same thing this way:

  send "ResetTime" to this card in 10 milliseconds
  -- gives time for the "doThis" handler to complete

  on ResetTime
    set the currentTime of player "player1" to the duration of player
  end ResetTime

You won't have to do this with Rev 2.0, BTW, so I suggest you upgrade as
soon as it's available. :-)
