I don't think so. So far, no one else has been able to reproduce the 
problem. I have never seen the problem either, and I use an awful lot of 
background groups in my work.

But it is close, and writing to support is fine. Runtime prefers that 
the user submit to Bugzilla, but if they aren't comfortable with that, 
Runtime will gladly take reports via support.

As I recall, it wasn't reproducible by anyone else, so I suspect it is a 
problem specific to this user. The user is new, and may not fully 
understand how background groups work or what to do to enable their 
behavior. We all have to learn these things at some point.

That's always a good idea, and welcome. However, support -- which will 
be me -- will do just what I did yesterday when it appeared on the list. 
I will try to reproduce the problem and fail. The recipe as posted works 
perfectly in the several versions of Revolution I tried.

I will admit there are many bugs that need to be addressed, but I am 
pretty sure this isn't one of them.
