The above doesn't work for me on Win2K or XP.  The objects just appear or
hide without any transition.  We had a discussion similar to this recently,
and it does appear that hiding and showing objects is the problem, as Chipp

 lock screen
 hide grc 1
 unlock screen with visual dissolve

But this (going to a new card) does:

 lock screen
 go cd 2
 unlock screen with visual dissolve

Maybe there's an issue with the syntax (other folks are having similar
