Clone and invisible stacks

I'm trying to clone a stack and keep it invisible while certain visual
aspects (such as size) are fixed up on it before showing.
Unfortunately cloning shows the stack, even if the stack is way off
screen, or invisible etc. Well call me pedantic... but making it
immediately invisible shows it for a second, no matter what I do. Not
My question is: does anyone know how to effectively copy a stack,
complete, into an off-screen or invisible empty stack? Essentially
cloning but not showing the stack till later.
The only way I can think of at this stage is to duplicate the actual
disk file, rename it etc. Pretty sloppy. Again I've searched the docs
and I"m sure it is staring me in the face (it's 2am).
Many thanks yet again.
