>Among the controls in a group with background behavior I have a ³quick

>represent cards in the stack.  I handle ³mouseEnter² and ³mouseMove², and
>use the mouseH to calculate which card to go to.
>I find that the ³mouseMove² message is interrupted when I change cards.
>Even though the mouse is moving across what looks like the same graphic,
