I'm not sure if this is supposed to work or if this is just
a coincidence.

The docs still say:
"  When stacking, an element is not placed above the X-axis but rather on
   top of the previous element.  There must be something to stack upon.

As a quick workaround: draw a line at zero.  You say stacking a line
works, thus you could start by doing this.  The next element, even if
it is an AREA, will be stacked on this line.  "LINE1:0" will already do.
