'[PIC]: ICD, MPLAB and Stack Window'

I,m using mplab and an ICD to debug  a program running on an F873. I
suspect a stack overflow, however the 'stack window' in mplab is greyed
out, so I'm unable to monitor it.

Is this a limitation of the ICD ? the documentation mentions the ICD
uses one stack level but doesn't mention whether or not I can use a
stack window, or is something else wrong ?

I did reprogram the chip with the ICD s/w left out (to save a stack
level) but my s/w still goes haywire.

Any suggestions would be warmly received.

Can you not simulate it in MPLAB with the stack overflow switch on? I have
not been through the loop of trying to detect this situation, but know there
is a switch there which warns of a stack overflow condition.
