Bug Description

Hi. First, thanks for this cool software.

I'm new to JessyInk 2.0 and I'm just trying to get my head around how it works.

I've downloaded JessyInk_2_0_0_alpha_1.svg, and I'm experimenting by making small changes to it.

So I go to the Combination layer, and click the Slide 3 group (because its on top and easy to get to). I simply ungroup the slide from the appear effect (via ctrl-shift-G) then regroup (via ctrl-g). Then save the file and open in a browser. My hope was that the file would remain unchanged.

Instead, when I first land on JessyInk_2_0_0_alpha_1.svg#3_0, I see slide 1 and slide 3 mostly covers it. So instead of appearing at order number 20, slide 3 is visible from order 0 onwards. It's as if grouping with the effect does nothing.

Am I doing something wrong?

I'm using archlinux. Inkscape came with an earlier version of JessyInk, but since I have the Module layer and I've run the insall/update, that it should still work. Correct?

Thanks for any help.

So, I've repeated the steps I described above, and sometimes, it works fine. But other times, the effects object lose their magic. And since there's no errors or feedback of any sort (that I know how to get to) I have no idea what's wrong.

If anyone can tell me my mistakes with the attached file, I'd appreciate it. I can't tell why the two object appear on one slide, instead of appearing one at a time.
