leghwI' - one doing the seeing.
leghlu'wI' - was an attempt to move it from subject to object.

<qeylIS'e' lIjlaHbe'bogh vay'> Kahless the Unforgettable.  This is canon.  
So: leghbe'bogh vay', but this talks about the subject, no object is
mentioned.
So: Doch'e' leghbe'bogh vay', oh I hate using the word "thing"; people in
general overuse it.
It was over ten years ago.  I'm sure I had my reasoning at the time.
(Right now I have to go to work.  This is making me late.)

You went back to the "thing".  I think it refers to the /action/ itself, not
the subject or object.
