"toplevel" is not my, but the terminology of the Trancript Dictionary
for backgrounds whose direct owners are cards or the stack.

You seem to have overlooked something in my last message of Tuesday
under "background owners" where I responded to the recommendations of
you, miscdas, and Dave Cragg?

I wrote "Indeed, Dave´s "number of cards" suggestion did the trick
This was the direct solution I had dreamed of.

This seems to be true (and this "number" matter has nothing to do with
the question of "unplaced" backgrounds).

Thanks again for your suggestions.
