Yes, I understand about inheritance in the substacks that I create 
and add to the application.  But I was surprised by spontaneous 
inheritance by dialog stacks that did not originate with me and that 
were being used freely by the IDE --especially when they carried over 
without problem to the OS X build.  I tried very briefly today to get 
this to happen on purpose, but was not successful. I can't find any 
documentation yet and will continue to read and experiment.
