I see, although what you are describing seems to be something 
different.  Metal-look stacks used to refresh rather poorly under older 
versions, but what I'm describing here is a complete disappearance of 
all objects (controls) except for the metal-look stack window, which 
occurs unpredictably when I switch from the Edit to Browse tool.  I 
don't recall whether I had a particular control selected at the time 
that I switched tools.
