Yes. (Unlike fields, custom properties aren't converted automatically,
because they can contain binary data and conversion would mess that up.)
Use the MacToISO function to convert from Mac to Windows/Unix:

  set the myCustomProp of this stack \
     to MacToISO(the myCustomProp of this stack)

It's around the focused control and is a standard Windows feature. You can
get rid of it by turning off the button's traversalOn.
