Not sure what you mean by this? I created a stack with a background/group
id 1011. The group is placed on card 4 of the stack. Restart LC and re-open
the stack, and this puts true:

put there is a group id 1011 of stack "untitled 1"

No card containing the group had been visited. This is on a Mac, LC 8.x
