i wanted to say that the bug is probably fixed in 1.5 (where we have real groups) but i have to confirm that the bug still happens in 1.5

however, in 1.4 working on elements of groups is not really supported, even if it is possible.

for now you should ungroup, edit, regroup.

i don't think that this bug should block the release of 1.4, since most people won't be aware of the fact that one can indeed edit an element of a group.

i suggest that we should fix this in 1.4.1 or even 1.5.

yes, i feel a need to finally see 1.4 released!
and there are only 36 hours in a day...
