Action on embedded view acts on doc containing the view, not the doc selected in the view

I have a view with an action that calls a simple LotusScript agent that runs on all selected docs in the view.
It sets a new value to a field in each doc.
This new value is then visible in the view.

When I click the action it acts on the selected docs which it finds with dc = db.UnprocessedDocuments.
dc.Count is equal to the number of docs selected.

So far so good.

I have embedded this view in a form and create a doc with this form so the view can be seen in context (= 'context' doc)
Now, when I click on the action at the top of the embedded view, dc = db.UnprocessedDocuments returns only one document which is the current 'context' document, not the documents selected in the view.

I developed this agent earlier specifically to use withing the embedded view and am convinced it was working.

I have rebooted in case Notes had got confused but no change.

Why is this happening?
How can I make the view action in the embedded view actually act on the view docs?

This is stopping me progressing so any suggestions welcome.
