Unless the stack has many thousands of cards, chances are there's a 
script in play that you haven't caught.

You might consider using my "4W Flight Recorder" tool to find the 
culprit.  It's in the Stacks section of RevNet - in the IDE see 

Click "Start Recording", do the action that creates a card, then click 
"Stop Recording" and review the results, which will be a list of 
messages and handlers triggered during the recording, nested for easy 
identification of the calling chain.  Double-clicking any line in that 
list will open the script referenced there.

Let us know what you find.
