Stack opens behind Windows desktop

Odd Windows problem, that happens inconsistently: A standalone's
mainstack has its decorations set to empty and is sized to the
windowboundingrect. On launch, or sometimes when maximizing from the
task bar, the stack window opens invisibly. One person described it as
being "behind" the desktop. It can sometimes be brought back to view by
pressing the Windows key on the keyboard, and when that key is released
the stack pops back into view where it belongs.
I've tried forcing it by specifically issuing the "toplevel" command and
the "show" command on both openstack and uniconifystack. The client says
it still sometimes fails to display. I've seen it happen only once, on
launch, and couldn't reproduce it again. It never happens in the IDE.
The stack is never made invisible or hidden; only its iconic is changed.
This happens only on Windows, the Mac version goes to and from the dock
without any problem. Has anyone seen this?
