Hi Eric

I'm afraid it is worse than that.  Things like this are not reliable: "get
the cpValue of the owner of field mydata", where the owner is a group.
Sometimes it will work, other times Rev will actually return the contents of
another field in another group (and these are not controls that were created
on the fly).  Since wasting a whole day tracking down that bug (in code that
had appeared to be working for weeks), I now _always_ get the long id of
(for example) field myData, and then parse the long ID.
