Very interesting, but are you saying that having a strong elevator would add to the problem?

I don't see that.

Here's a good discussion, that includes accelerated stalls and deep stalls -- which sound like possibilities for what you experienced.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stall_(flight)

It talks about how, in a deep stall, the turbulent airflow from the stalled wing can blanket the control surfaces at the tail.

But having a weak elevator (or horizontal stabilizer) doesn't seem likely to help with that!!!???
