maybe it is offscreen, or else invisible ?

can you get a stack to open ?

if so you could make a button in it, with this script:

on mouseup
  if the loc of stack "revmenubar" is not within the screenrect then
    set the loc of stack "revmenubar" to the screenloc
  end if
  show stack "revmenubar"
  put "" -- just to open the message box in case you need it
end mouseup
