It's a necessary design decision. Normally the windowBoundingRect
prevents stacks from exceeding the screen boundaries. On smaller
screens, a stack representing a full-sized page of text (11 inches tall)
might well exceed the boundaries of the windowBoundingRect. If the stack
is to be printed, the whole height of the card has to be displayed even
if it is taller than the screen and extends visually beyond it. Stacks
opened for printing ignore the screen boundaries as a convenience, and
they open at their full height (or width) which ensures that the entire
card contents will print.
