No I didn't and of course that's the answer, otherwise you could just take a
password protected stack and set its password to empty without knowing the
password. ;-) 

What was throwing me off is the lock symbol still appeared in the
Application Browser. So you have to set the passkey. Set the password to
empty. Save the stack and then Refresh the Application Browser. Thanks
Richard!
