Thanks for the suggestion but stacks positioned around taskbar don't appear
to force any refresh (even tried a systemWindow stack).

Guess I'll use brute force mouse repositioning. I have the interval set at
10 millisecs and it seems pretty unnoticeable.  Lame, but FWIW:

command restoreVistaStartButton
   put screenRect() into tRect
   put item 1 of tRect + 20,item 4 of tRect - 20 into tLoc
   put the screenMouseLoc into origLoc
   set the screenMouseLoc to tLoc
   wait 10 millisecs with messages
   set the screenMouseLoc to origLoc
end restoreVistaStartButton
