Ubuntu Studio 14.04 (XFCE Window manager).

On setting the backdrop (black), the revTools palette disappears;

then, on setting up a new Mainstack that also is not visible,

straight after that the revMenubar stack also disappeared,

I said a few coarse word, then everything reappeared; clicked
on the revMenubar to Exit and the revTools palette and the
Untitled stack disappeared again.

Not good.

Mind you: I have never used a backdrop.
