Yes, but perhaps there's enough leakage to make this work.  After all, 
the EMI requirement (assuming it's running at 32 kHz) isn't particularly 
stringent and because the fob is small, the radiated field at any 
distance is going to very small.  OTOH, I can put a probe or coil right 
on or around the fob.

I'll let you all know what I detect when I try it tomorrow.
