MouseDown sent to button in group, but MouseUp sent to card

This is an anomalous (in my opinion) behavior of the "mouseWithin" message.
>From the dictionary:

Note: If there is no mouseWithin handler in the target object's script, no
mouseWithin message is sent, even if there is a mouseWithin handler in an
object that's further along the message path.

Why this should be so is a mystery, but maybe someone from the team will
chime in.
