Regarding the possible causes of my problem Marian kindly pointed out,
no, I don't use the App Browser here. I opened it once when I began to
work on the stack under Rev to verify the composition of the background,
and it took what felt like minutes to display the innards finally. I
thought it might have to do with the number of cards. Since then, I've
saved myself the time and nerves and abstain from taking recourse to the
App Browser with this particular project.
As to the question of the save being only slow or really hung, it would
suppose it has finished, at least judging from the change of of cursor
and the last line displayed in the window.
