i actualy meant what does the ls -sl say ewwhan you have both objects selected! So i can se what you actualy selected as opposed to what you toufght you selected.
BUT yes you use subids so its important that you uderstand that you might select two objects whike you think your selecting one. One poly shape and one sbd one. Select the shapes manualy (open outliner eneble show shapes).
Secondly you do have a bad naomig convention goinng on!
