I should have looked at the stack properties as well as global
properties: the stack's visible property was false.
This is a database stack where most activity is initiated by Library
handlers that "go invisible" to the database to file a new record.
The handler causing the problem was running from inside the database
stack, and needed a show stack statement following the call to the
Library's record-filing handler.
