The underlineLinks is (as of 1.1, I think) both a stack property and a
global property. Hide Groups turns off the global property, but if the
stack property is set, it takes precedence. So try

  set the underlineLinks of stack "Test" to false

and see whether that gets rid of the underlines.

The "techwriter hallucinations" object. ;-)

This was a typo/braino on my part, and should refer to the "underlineLinks"
property, which is the correct name. (It's fixed in the latest alpha.)
