Looks like you & I will have to wait for the experts, Terry.

In the meantime, the closest alternative I've found so far is flushEvents
which, even though "semi selective" seems to me like using a shotgun
because I don't have a laser targeting scope rifle.

OTOH, if one's stacks put such repeating events in motion it may be
preferred form to send flushEvents on closeStack.
