Bug: in filmstrip, "Expand Stack" expands all stacks, not just the one

When I have a single stack selected in the filmstrip, and I right click on the stack and choose "Stacking/Expand Stack", instead of expanding just that one stack, Lightroom expands all of the stacks in the filmstrip.  And when I choose "Collapse Stack", all stacks are collapsed again.
There are separate commands for "Expand All Stacks" and "Collapse All Stacks", so this should not be happening.

To expand ONE stack select the top image and hit the "S" key. That also collapses that stack.

Thanks, Carlos.  That works, but the bug that happens when using the right click context menu still exists.  Although interestingly, once I used the 'S' key, the menu bug went away, at least for now!

If you have both stacks selected in Grid View, Expand Stack will expand them both.

The S key only works to expand the stacks in Library and will also expand all selected in Grid.

Why don't you just click the stack icon in the thumbnail to expand/collapse stacks.

Thanks, Robert.  I am in Library mode, viewing a single image at a time, with the Filmstrip below.  The problem happened when right clicking on a stack in the Filmstrip.
