No, that's not it: all other graphics display normally.

Now that's possible. When the problem manifests itself, only the anchor is
visible: there is no frame border to click on.

Yes, I've seen that, but I don't see that behaviour here.
I will set up a test file that manifests the problem and do some forensics on

Sure will, and thanks. I'm sure there is an explanation and a solution, but
