Quite simply ;-), it was because the name of stack3 included an  
accented character ("Études")
As soon as I renamed it as "Etudes" the third button opened it normally!

Here again the name of the field included an accented character  
With "Demarches" the button opened (or closed) the field as expected.

So, for Linux standalones, accents are disastrous, but seems that it  
is only if used in the scripts. Fortunately the accents can be kept  
visible on the interface, thanks to the "label" feature : name without  
accent, but label with the accent(s)

Assuredly, it appears that Linux does not like French ;-))

Thanks again to Sarah and Bernard Devin for the attention they paid to  
this problem.
