Nope Sorry no Bugzilla of this, else I'd have posted the URL to it.
I can't make it happen consistently in IDE or standalone, it just 
happens out of the blue, and as usual I can't
begin to guess why. It happens when opening a stack, either the main 
stack or a sub stack.
I had lock/unlock screen all over the place at one point, and then 
removed them all thinking they were
related to the "menuMode"-inspector menu Button lock up bug. Guess I 
have to go  and put them all back in,
as a work around for the bizarre black stack attack.
