I don't know what is happening.  I tried it again.  The place does not 
work from the menu.  The name is there, but the place does not take.

At first it didn't work from the message box, but it does now, so I 
suspect I had typos.  Anyway, I'm not able to repeat that.

But the problem from the menu is repeatable.  Clues:  I have another 
group that is placeable that is not on the menu and a subgroup that is.  
(I would guess both are bugs.)  Maybe the subgroup is confusing things.
