We've run into the exact problem in our deployed FormsPlayer XForms and
I would also be very interested in finding out if there is a workaround
for this limitation.  The general problem seems to be that IDs within
repeats lose their uniqueness.  In our case, activating a switch
explicitly behaves unpredictably - it toggles a different block than the
one from where the switch is toggled.
