When you create a Virtual Connector End (VCE) the Doppelganger does not have the ability to have its Z-order changed independently.  Since one of the principal use cases (at least in our view) is to have multiple instances of an item visually embedded in a number of encompassing elements, this causes problems!  Interestingly, you can adjust the Z-order of the Doppelganger by changing the Z-order of the master.  However, as will be appreciated, this could cause problems for the master vis-a-vis its Z-order.

These types of problems could be overcome by having REAL t_diagramobjects marked as Doppelgangers.
