Thank you for the suggestion, but maxWidth is at the default.   Regardless, I don't think the maxWidth property is in play when you set the dimensions of a stack by script.

Any other thoughts?   Kinda stuck!

    just a guess, but does "printingStack" have a maxWidth value set (other 
    than the default of 65535)?
