There are some properties that are set when you import a HC stack: the
hcAddressing and the dynamicPaths. These are both stack properties.

The hcAddressing governs whether object names specify "cd" and "bg", and
the dynamicPaths implements a subtle tweak in the message path. (You can
look both of these up in the Dictionary for more info.)

It might be possible that the hcAddressing could cause some of the problems
you described, but not most of them. So I'm not sure.
