Is stack3 correctly built into the standalone?
Is the a preOpen.. or open... handler in stack 3 that could be causing an error?
Can you build a version which displays the result if there is a
problem - that would help work out what the error is?

Perhaps he is double-clicking on the button which would show then hide.
One way to avoid this is to have the button show the help field, and
then a click in the help field itself hides it.
