I was watching that bug report and I read that comment shortly after it
appeared. And the first thing I did after upgrading to Rc2 was to
delete all the broken groups on the six pages and recreate them with
newly created groups.

But explain to me how reading that comment should have made it possible
for me to see broken groups that *did not appear on the page*. Even
Document Outline did not find the broken groups until after upgrading
to Rc1. And even then Document Outline merely showed me the outline of
the groups; the objects inside were never visible. Furthermore, after
upgrading to Rc2 and removing everything visible from the pages I did
Select All and nothing was selected.

I merely hope that the invisibility was a function of the unwanted
grouping bug and it will not reoccur.
