No idea, I never thought of it as a bug until you suggested it ;-)

Umm... the docs say the behavior is in the form of a long id which is not true because the long id will include the substack name. So I guess it is either a docs bug or an engine one. It would be handy to have a modifier for the id property to return this not quite abbreviated & not quite long form of ID:

I personally like the idea that the behavior doesn't include the mainstack name so I can copy the substacks I store my behaviors on out of my object library into the standalone at build time without anything breaking ;-)
