1. The dispute refers to the order of the blessings of Yayin (wine), Kidush, Ner (blessing on the candle), and Havdalah.
2. This stands for Yayin, Kidush, Ner, Havdalah, and Zeman (the blessing of Shehecheyanu).
3. The custom is that one first says Birkas ha'Mazon (if he ate a meal), and then he recites the blessings of the wine, fragrant spices, flame, and Havdalah.
4. Such a statement removes one's mind from continuing the blessing that he made before he ate his meal.
5. This is why Rava's servant always lit a torch with multiple wicks from a pre-existing flame before Havdalah.
