Yup, that was it. Thanks. There was a text file and also three aliases
to stacks. I took them all out and made a new build of the IDE, and it
works now.

If you get a chance some time, it would be nice if the plugin manager
would test for stack files. Other file types leave blank lines in the
list, which also throws off library loading. The aliases all referenced
stacks, but they don't resolve and so they leave blank lines in the
list. When there are blank lines, trying to open one of the plugins or
loading one as a library is off by as many lines in the list as there
are blanks. I.e., in the Plugin Manager I would select a line in the
list, click "Open as toplevel", and a stack 3 lines up would open.

I still have no idea why my old copy of the IDE was opening an unrelated
stack on disk though. With the new IDE build it stopped.
