Datagrid Row Selection

I am experiencing another interesting behaviour.  As you can see in the code below I am trying to go to the card "Action". 
The card is displayed but neither the PreOpenCard or OpenCard handers are being invoked.  This is seen in the mac development environment.

Does any one have an idea as to what would cause this behaviour?
