I am not sure if that helps, but you can simulate any message by just 
typing it into the messagebox, when the right stack is the front most ( 
Its name shows top right in the messagebox) i.e.:
or if you do not want to/cant have the stack front most:
send preOpenStack to stack "I am a Stack"

nice little trick Jeanne told me on this list some months ago
