If you set a group to have background behavior then it sits above the
stack layer in the message path (or below, depending on how you view the
layers). At any rate, messages will hit the background group before the
stack script sees them. That's the way it is, the way it has always
been, and the way the path was designed from the start. If you want
something different you need to rethink your stack design.
