Thank you for your kind offer!

I created a fresh stack with a grp and now it works!?
on mouseUp pMouseButton
  create button "b1" in grp "el_testo"
  set the loc of button "b1" of grp "el_testo" to the loc of this cd
end mouseUp
No idea what was wrong with my other stack?
Temporary hiccup maybe? :-)
