Sorry, I didn't say it right the first time. What I should have said
was, I need to set the height of the stack to the height of the card.
The height of the card always includes the height of the menu bar group.
(Which may save you some time in the future, since there is nothing to
"figure out"; the card height is always the same whether the card has
been scrolled or not.)
Or am I still off base?
