Thanks Klaus!

I was in the middle of a bunch of testing, and figured someone might 
already have the answer.

A few follow-up points if I may...

How is accessing an unopened stack different than using "go invisible"?

Does cloning an unopened stack cause the screen flash, where the stack 
become visible temporarily as it does when you clone an invisible 
stack?

If I am accessing an unopened stack, and I then choose to display it, 
say as a sheet, it that cleaner to display than changing window modes 
from "invisible toplevel" to "visible sheet"?

Very cool. It's like getting new features unveiled every day. Too bad 
it wasn't yesterday, so they could be in my projects already.  ;-)
