In this case, if it's not in the card, then surely it's not in the
stack and should not be available for "Placing" or whatver.

No. it's a bug in RunRev. The only way a group could be created like
that, is in a stack that exists in memory but not as a file. This is
possible - once! But during the course of tracking this problem down
I quit RunRev, restarted the machine and re-loaded RunRev. The Group
was part of the stack where the error occured. When I created another
stack the problem wasn't present, yet the Group in question was still
in the Place Groups Sub-Menu. Besides all this I really don't think a
Group can exist (or at least be accessible by RunRev), unless it is
in a stack, and all stacks have at least one card, and they should
appear in the App Browser anyway.

Yes, It's a Bug - Shock Horror! There are loads of em in RunRev - Get
used to it and stop being in denial!
Take Care and All the Best
