I'm not sure it's the same thing but even on a single screen the app 
browser gets out of sync. If you right click on the right hand pane and 
select "refresh" it fixes itself. I see this frequently when editing groups.

The same thing happens, but less frequently, on the left hand side, like 
when you remove a stack from memory using the contextual menu. To refresh 
that, look for the tiny little icon at the bottom right of the pane which 
refreshes the stack list.
